Default Removing paint from fiberglass columns

We have fiberglass columns on the exterior of our house, and because the painter didn't do a good job the first time, the paint has chipped and peeled. The problem is that we have pressure washed and scraped, but all the paint doesn't come off. Any suggestions?

Default Yup

It's called sandpaper and elbow grease. Start out with some 120 grit. That should do it.

What about some kind of wire brush on a drill?
