The best way to strip a frame?

I am getting KH longneck soon for my custom street uni; and i want to strip it. I am wondering what different ways there are to strip it and whether i need to do anything else to it like clearcoating etc.

I really like the matt finish Pedro managed to get on his frame and would like to try that.

Please note that i do not have an powertools so i really want a way to do manually such as pant stripper or sandpaper.

thanks in advance
simon

Use paint stripper, I've used it on one of my unicycles before, also, I would recommend getting a metal brush so you can get the paint out of the tough spots such as the crown.

Be charming. Get it drunk and then promise that you'll be faithful and never leave it.
