waterless cleaner from the hardware store. Not sure of the name bit it's a brownish/grey gritty substance. Oily too. Our skin is porous, and what we put on it is absorbed by our bodies. I find hot water and elbow grease to be a very effective paint remover.

We just got a load of paint primer and paint off our arms and fingers with goo gone. It works! For our hands, we sprayed some of the orange-scented gel on and put on a latex glove for 5 minutes and - voila - all of the primer and paint was literally melted off. And it didn't leave our skin raw.

Do you need a special paint for corrugated steel?

Paint? No. Primer? YES. Corrugated steel is galvanized so you will need an etching galvanized metal primer. Regular paint or primer will peel off in no time! The etching primer as you can guess by the name actually reacts with the steel for a better bond. The steel should be sandblasted beforehand, or al least pressure washed thoroughly. The paint will adhere to the primer. Go to any real paint store (not a big box store with a paint department), let them know what you want to do and they will be glad to help and answer any questions.

Can you paint latex paint over oil based primer?

paint it with a universal primer such as "BLOCKER" brand first Yes, you can. My preference is to use oil base primer under latex (water base) paint, because in my experience the oil base primer lasts longer. It stays stuck to the wood longer. I think latex primer is basically bogus. I have wasted a lot of time using latex primer and it comes loose and I have to sand it all off and use oil base primer. Latex primer does not work. Just like latex paint sticks poorly to bare wood. Latex paint does not have much "stick" (also called "tack"). It is a thin sheet of rubber, and there is very little "tack" to it to keep it glued to the wood. Latex peels off readily, once you put a knife under an edge.
