Looks great on a non-essential piece of ply below the sole..

guess I'm destined for the Previous Owner thread...

Some of those "green" strippers are pretty darn harsh on paint. I wouldn't risk it. The stripper may just break down the paint enough to cause a problem later on. But the stripper could at least make it easier to get down to a base that is then sandable at least.

Pressure-Treated & painted plywood should be just fine, in a non-critical application, as long as the edges aren't exposed to standing (or very frequent splashing) water.
For "extra" longevity, I'd have epoxy-sealed the plywood (double-coat edges), prior to painting.

Of course, should a hundred pounds (whatever) of battery get “loose”, this application will suddenly go “critical”.
