Powder coated fuselage stripping

A chap I have been speaking with has a an S1-C fuselage that has been powder coated, it was done quite a while ago and has started to show signs of minor corrosion.

He was wanting to look at the possibilities of stripping it back and re-painting with an epoxy, has anyone had any succes with removing powder coat? bead blasting, soda blasting, acid strip .............?

Any ideas?
