auto paint stripper

Hey guys,

In the next few months I'm going to get stuck into my next project. Windowless HK van. I'm wondering what the best brand and method for paint stripping to use ? I realise I will need to mask up seams/openings/panel joins so no stripper gets in there and comes back to haunt me after its painted. The van has about 10 coats of paint on it so its going to have to be some pretty nasty stripper.
My last project I did I had the shell bead blasted but I dont wish to go to that extent on this one, it will be a budget build up with if not all of the work done by myself.

Chassis Questions

I have a WB chassis that I am putting under my HQ bodied van. The old chassis was twisted, plus now I'll have RTS.

I need to know what steering parts are different.

I've been told that the steering arms are different lengths, but I have already some good advice on this, namely that the different lengths are for power steering (short) or non power steering (long), Also the early models had short arms on all models but this made steering a bitch. Anyone heard anything different?

What other differences are there?

Engine Mounts

Please answer this only if you KNOW, A guess I can do myself :^)

I need to know which side is which for the engine mounts for a chev into a HQ-WB. I have been told the wider one is the drivers side.

I know, I know, I should have marked them/written it down when I took it out, but I didn't and know I'm stuck...

What diff?

Hey all i heard a bit about putting volvo diffs under old holdens. Now they're LSD's right? My question is what type of Volvo diff fits and what is required to swap em. I currently have a banjo in the back of the HR, can i stick with the stock drums? or do i need to use the volvo ones? Is the stud pattern the same etc?
Also what other diffs could be used? I've also heard of VL Turbo ones being put in older holdens. And LH / LX LSD centres being put in the banjo.
