I have a T-99 that someone slopped a clear coat of something on everything. I used dry steel wool on the wood to kill the shine and left the wood at that. I had tried laquer thinner, Hoppes, and WD-40 and I don't remember what else. None worked on wood or metal.

On the metal, I used a propane torch and the stuff bubbled up and brushed right off. Of course you would not want to use this in combination with gasoline.

By the way, you don't have to smoke or have a flame to touch off gasoline. Dropping a metal part on concrete or striking two metal parts together may be enough spark to alter your plans for the rest of the day.
