Well you can start here http://members.aol.com/kstegath/articles/re_paint.htm
Also, do a gereral search on any search engine by typing in the words corvette paint removal and you will get hundreds of testimonials of others who have taken on this project.
I've read several accounts of do-it-yourselfers that stated it takes about 100-150 hours to do a proper job. Before you start try to get an old piece of fiberglass and test it with whatever method you choose before you begin on your project.
Good Luck and let us know your progress.
