Stripping is a messy job. Don't get it on any rubber or plastic. Don't do it unless you have to. If you do, you'll have to re-do any bondo on the car, because the stripper will weaken it.
Take your time when stripping. Let the stripper do the work. It'll take at least 1 coat of stripper for each coat of paint, maybe more if the paint is thick. After you get to the metal, sand to remove all leftover paint. You'll also have scratch marks from the scraper which will need more sanding or a bit of body filler. Which is another down side to stripping. Sand with 80, then 120, then 220. The metal will then need to be throughly cleaned with a metal treatment. No stripper residue should be left, or the primer & paint will not dry correctly & molt
Stripping is a major job. But you can do it if you take your time. Good luck!
