Removing Powdercoating from Rims

Discussion in 'Bling and Appearance' started by Mogwai, Oct 26, 2007.

  1. My rims are powdercoated (i think) gold but its really old and looks crappy I want to remove the powder coating so I can give the rims a new look. Does anyone know how best to strip them I hear it's hard to get off?

  2. sandblasting!
  3. +1 i imagine.
    Paint striper and brake fluid wount eat through them.
  4. you get them particle blasted, because once the integrity of the seal that the powdercoat provides has been compromised, by flying bits of grit, it peels off like a banana skin.
  5. cheers for you replys apparently pint stripper will do the job so I'll try out that recommendation first
