Removing rust primer paint?

Hey. I hope this is the right place to ask this question.

I was wondering, is it possible to chemically remove rust primer paint? I coated a plane with rust primer, but decided that it wasn't a great idea after all, and was wondering how to most efficiently remove it? It's been in a vinegar bath for a couple of days, but I don't think it's working.

If it's warm weather where you are you might use a paint stripper. The best retail remover I've used is Klean Strip Premium Stripper. No remover even the professional ones work well below 70 degrees.

A lot of times plain old lacquer thinner on a rag is good enough on metal.
