What would be the best method for removing all the old paint from a metal up and over garage door ?

I'd have thought it would have to be a chemical stripper. I would assume the door to be galvanised and would want to minimise the amount of abrasive work on it so as not to damage the coating. But , I do wonder why all the paint needs removing anyway , maybe clean , spot prime , undercoat and finish?
Probably better to stick a picture up if you can as fitzy suggests.

Thanks for replies , I have decided it is not as bad as I thought, and taking off alll the old paint maybe a bit over the top . I will just scrape off any loose paint sand and go from there . Thanks

Scrape loose paint, a wire brush on a drill or angle grinder is good but you need to use a really light touch. Sand the edges to blend everything together.
