I've just used the new, supposedly rubbish, nitromors on a ti frame. It was ok but time consuming, it took about 4 hours. I just followed the directions on the tin and it worked.

Do a search on how to remove laquer from an ally frame.
There is already a thread on this subject.
I used Wurth Gasket remover.....spray on leave for 20 mins & scrub off.

Soft media blast. By the time you've paid out for paint stripper etc you may as well pay to get it done properly.
