Painting stock rims
Im in the process of attempting to paint my stock canyon rims. I used 1 quart of paint stripper and didn't take all the clear coat off. I then bought a can of aircraft remover in a rattle can. It's still not taking all of the clear coat off of the rim particularly in the spokes if you will. I took a course wire wheel to them and still very time consuming. Any advice? Every post that I read made it sound so easy but I've spent over 4 days just prepping and am no where closer to painting.
could just scuff it up and smooth any imperfections with sand paper. i did a set that came out really good like that. prep time was only 2 hours. On my grand cherokee i sand blasted them and used an epoxy primer on the bare alumium ( only stuff i found that holds up on bare aluminum) then just did a cheap semi flat black tractor implement paint.
