Refinishing a Supercar icon suggestions

Acquired in 2015. Had been sitting in a sealed cargo container since mid 90's. 

After an extensive recommissioning in 2016 and several hundred miles of driving she's been sitting high and dry. 

In the early 90's the owner refinished her in a red metallic, car was originally white.  I swapped off the big bumpers for euro style and had the car sprayed with black Plasti Wrap.

It's now time to disassemble and invest in a correct, white repaint. What the is best way to strip old finish?  Chemical? Media blast? Does anyone here have experience in this? The body is in nice shape. No corrosion, no dents, no evidence of bondo. 

Thoughts?

Have you tried contacting any of the shops that have been doing restorations on the these?

Hi  Allan and thanks.

What shops are you familiar with?  I know it's an expensive project and I want someone that will start and finish in a timely manner.

I've seen many instances where cars sit, they lose parts, horror shows.
