What is the easiest way to strip the inside of a '66 mustang door, without ruining the textured finish? Or what is the best way to redo the paint?

I had mine blasted with walnut shells and it came out looking very clean with no damage to the gran pattern.

Aircraft paint stripper and steel wool. Follow up with lacquer thinner and clean steel wool.

all of the above works. Another alternative is a copper wire wheel on your drill or angle grinder. Quick and easy.
