The only way I have found that's better is to get someone else to do it. 

Strip disc it is 

Damn, might have to wait until I can get the car outside and just let nature deal with the dust instead.

Yea I stripped my entire ute tray to bare metal. The cup brush was fine, but not as good as the strip discs. The strip disc also gives a nicer metal finish than the cup brush. I tried chemical as well which was useless for anything that wasn't a single layer of paint (three respray and bog) was messy, smelly, and slow going, still needed mechanical finishing to get the little bits off. 

 

Cup brush was good for underseal, did a decent job at the paint and bog but the strip discs won out to the point where I went and got more instead of finishing with the cup brush that I already had (I have a few makita ones in different sizes) 

 

That's my experience over a hundred odd hours of using allsorts on my ute. It's got plenty to test

Ive spent a little time today chipping away at it with a wood chisel, which is working. Still going to need to use the stripping disk to tidy it up, but chipping out the big chunks helps. Im a huge fan of strip disks though, they're super effective.

Use a cup brush, any bog that doesnt come off must be stuck well enough to stay, more bog over the top, done.

The over all winner (other than a stripping disc)? A heat gun and sharp wood chisel. Heat the bog/panel up hot, and the bog just peels off easy. A stripping disc will clean the panel up afterwards, but its pretty clean as it is. The chisel works best when held as close to parallel with the panel as possible.
