topic 17603



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 0000 steel wool [linked by editor to product info at Rockler] and Zip Strip [linked by editor to product info at Amazon]. Also use chemical resistant Protective Gloves [linked by editor to product info at Amazon] and use in a VERY WELL ventilated area.
