Lead Based Paint on Ruabon Red brick - how do I remove??

As above please....

Have a house built from Ruabon Red brick (mid terrace) and this house has been painted in Red Lead Based Paint!! Looks totally out of place compared to the other 3 houses attached, and really would like to get the paint off the house.

Rang local sandblasting company - he wasnt interested as he didnt want to damage the brick

Bought Nitromors, but this didnt work....

Tried a wire brush thing on a drill - this made it much worse!! (turned the brick black - luckily I have been using very small area's to experiment)

Dont mind spending a little on acid's or whatever, but dont want to spend hundreds on a professional doing it - I dont mind getting my hands dirty!

Any other suggestions to get the paint off is MUCH appreciated

Thanks in advance :)
