Default Paint stripper on fiberglass

I'm looking for a paint stripper that's safe to use on fiberglass bodies. My cart looks like somebody painted a couple coats of latex on with a roller. I'd like to get a good portion of this off while the body is still on. Anyone have any recommendations? Cart is shown in the thread linked below.

I used soy strip on a plastic outboard engine cowling and it worked pretty good without any plastic damage. Got it off the interweb.

Thanks for the info. Are you talking about this product?

What ever you use make sure you neutralize it well afterwards so whatever stripper that remains in the fiberglass does not cause bubbling and blistering later... I bought a c3 corvette where this happened. What a mess I ended up stripping the paint with a razor blade and doing a decent amount of body and paint work to correctly the previous owners mistakes.

I got an ezgo body and front cowl that someone painted it with what looks like bed liner spray . I can see some hunter green so I know what color it used to be. I wonder if this product you are talking about will remove this ugly grey looking stuff ?

I don't know, all I can tell you is it did a good job removing marine paint. Buy it and try it!

There are so many hunter green Ezgo bodies around that I wouldn’t even attempt to remove it. Pitch it and get another one.

There are none in my area and gas is expensive . I will figure some way to get it off.

I would definitely check market place. Being 20 miles from Ezgo this area is flooded with parts. Couple years back I watched my dealer buddy pitch 50 bodies in the dumpster along with tops and a bunch of other parts. He does a lot of rebuilds for Ezgo so when leases are coming in there are a bunch of carts moving through his shop.. Don’t think he delivers to Bama though..
