thats actually a good question. i assumed spray paint since the guy said he painted them himself but might be something else

Sandpaper and lots of it! When I took off the original paint and clear coat of the tc wheels, it took a. Very long time. But the prep work is the most important or else the paint won't stick. There's a diy on scion life.

I just removed rattle can paint from parts of my engine bay.... and all I used was 1 can of aircraft remover (can be found in autozone, etc etc for like $8 a can) no prep needed.... just spray the paint and watch the magic happen....then wipe down clean off and you are golden...

I tried to post a few vids but noob rules I need to follow lol any who go to you tube and type in aircraft remover...

i tried some and the paint didnt budge. dunno if it was the brand or what, but we used like half the can on one rim and all it did was ruin the paint that was there but didnt remove it lol. even used steel wool to try and get some off after spraying with no luck.

does that mean its like powdercoat?

hmmm could be, get the brush on one looks like a can of kerosene that is stronger than the aerosol one which I used the spray can one and it worked.... OH one thing i did was got close as possible I got sloppy with it because i wanted the paint off so I saturated it like there was no tomorrow and within a minute or two the paint started to curl...then hit it again then all I did was use an old decal squeegee and scraped off the paint....

hmmm brush on eh? sounds like a good way to lose fingertips, but ill still try it! ill go the extreme route and brush it on then use steel wool to get that stuff off. if that doesnt cut it, then not sure what would...
