I've been trying to strip some paint off wood. It's softwood and is outside. The paint stripper has removed some but there is a lot of the paint which seems determined to stay on.

Should I switch to abrasives? If yes, then which grit would you recommend (I have a Festool Rotex sander.) Here is a pic of the problem.

Thanks in advance.

If the existing paint is adhering so well and the wood is solid, why bother to strip it off. Just sand smooth and overcoat.

Or is this a sinful thought in a world of perfectionists.
