i use brake fluid, leave it over night and use an old tooth brush wen washing it off to get in te nooks and cranniessS'looking good Paul. What are you using to strip off the paint? I've got one in strip and using brake fluid, but it only takes one coat off at a time!
Someone suggested Tesco General Cleaner, but our Tesco store hasn't got any!
The only other thing I have is oven cleaner that strips chrome quickly, but I haven't tried it on paint yet.
