i used the aircraft paint stripper stuff. i used to stuff in the spray can versus the jug w/ brush. i sprayed about 2 thick coats each wheel. (found out one wouldve done it fine) and that just took up one can.


this is what i used...stuff is wicked, protect your eyes and skin

What are your plans to keep that finish? I brought mine back to life last spring, and they look like shit again.

i wont be driving them during the winter with the salt cuz they would be shot and arent gonna have clear coat. just keep my truck washed and use the mothers power ball polish etc., ive heard the biggest thing with keeping up raw aluminum wheels is with brake dust. and with my style wheel i dont think itl be a problem
