  • Aluminum wheels problem

    Hi all....

    I got a set of aluminum wheels that are pretty worn and needs pc. But, i got a huge problem with getting the old paint off. I dont think they are powder coated, the paint is like gum and no chemical stripper does much more than soften it up a bit, blasting is just a waste of time, at least in my cabinet and we use a device similar to this combined with a cabinet:

    Even tried to heat the wheels, dont do any good.

    Any ideas? Thinking of just sanding them down and pc right over the old paint....

    i just did some camero wheels with the same prob, I stuck them in the oven at 500 and baked the **** thing though these were steel wheels....i dont think it would hurt the alum wheels but you may want to check around a bit first.

        I have the same unit but find it has a hard time with Course media, Med and Fine are ok but Course tends to block up..
