I have a HyTower whose 24' of base tower section has been painted to blend
in with the forest. The painter got a little carried away at the ends where
electrical contact is needed.


I'd like to remove the latex paint at the junctions and other attachment
places where electrical contact is required.   A wire wheel on a drill would
remove the paint, but would also strip the zinc galvanizing layer as well.  


I'd like to keep the galvanizing layer to inhibit rust. 


What chemistry is suggested?
