If they were discolored they used the wrong chemicals. I would call a competent plating shop and talk to them.

Try using an aerosol type of stripper. The brand that Home Depot sells, works on powder coat. I don't know why it is but I have found that only aerosol spray strippers are the only type of stripper that works on powder coating.
