86 Yamaha XT 350 tank exterior coating

After banging, prying, twisting, cussing and even more cussing I've knocked the dents out of the steel tank on this beater bike I picked up cheap from a friend.
I tried using the orange flavored paint remover that you buy at Home Depot but it only flakes up the paint at the edges where bare metal is exposed. Thus I'm thinking it's powder-coated.
Does anyone know for a fact what the finish is before I pay a guy to sandblast it? "My understanding is" - I use those three words with clients when I'm not at all sure what the correct answer is - that sandblasting doesn't work well on powder-coating.

Thanks in advance.

P.S. Anyone from North Texas riding down to the TAR in April? Lemme know and we can ride together.
