As promised here are my results from using Peel Away 7 in my engine compartment:
Over all I am very pleased, as you can see in the pictures it took a lot of the paint off, some to bare metal, and what it did not take off was easily scraped off with a putty knife. One thing that you need to remember if you do use this is that you need to lay it on thick and make sure when you put the paper on that you have no air bubbles. Where the paper does not stick to the compound it dried up, which when peeling the paper away, it did not take the paint with it, but it was still quite easy to scape off. You will still need to use a wire brush to take it to bare metal but it was very quick.
