I've used acetone before with excellant results. Soak a few min, the coating just peels off in sheets. Other times it softens the coating and requires more work. Also have just blasted it off. Different types of coating will result in different ease of removal.

Soak it in a tub filled with Greased Lightning( full strength), let it set for about 5 days, remove part sparkling clean. Wear gloves.
