I'll second that. The only time stripping becomes necessary is when the car has been previously repainted and adhesion is suspect (i.e. Maaco) or if there has been serious deterioration or damage to the factory paint. I guess also if the car has been repainted several times making it too thick is not a good thing either.

I would not do the bare metal job, if the current paint is adhering well. You will never be able to prep the metal and apply as good a primer as what was put on in a controlled factory paint system. I know, I work for one of the largest paint companies in the US.
