CLEAN PAINT OFF ALUMINUM WHEELS





I just bought a 12 year old truck that was recently painted by the previous owner. There is quite a bit of overspray from the acrylic enamel paint (blue) on the aluminum wheels, bumpers, and rubber. Other then the overspray, I can live with the paint job for a while. How do I get the overspray off the aluminum wheels especially?

Thank you very much.

The same thing has happened to my son. Please let me know if you get any ideas.

Thank you,

Use coarse steel wool [this product on eBay or Amazon affil links] and Zipstrip. Also use chemical resistant rubber gloves [this product on eBay or Amazon affil links] and use in a VERY WELL ventilated area.
