When I re-did my truck at school last year, I used a pneumatic sander 
to take the paint off. It goes pretty fast just takes sticking 
to it.  I took the pain all the way down to bare metal on the bed, as 
as long as no one touched it, it did not rust.  If you're doing it 
this time of year when the humidity is low, that should not be a 
problem.  Wear a good mask and eye protection though.
