Short of soft media blasting, paint stripper would work best. :tu:

I've used this "aircraft stripper" before with good results, and no damage to the base aluminum. It's made for airplanes so it's safe for aluminum.

I believe most clear coats on JNC wheels are anodize. I've heard Easy-Off oven cleaner works on it but it is nasty stuff and you need to be careful it doesn't damage the aluminum...

i have used Mr muscle oven cleaning, worked well i think. this is a combo with paint stripper and prepsol. i did polish the rim so it wont look shiny like that normally.

So on those mk111 did you use the oven cleaner or that combo? How much of each did you use?

Oven cleaner works great on anodized aluminum. It does etch the aluminum though, so a polish will be necessary afterwards to make them pretty again. It will also damage any other surface it comes in contact with (including your squishy little eyes and lungs) so be sure you are in a clear area free of wind (travels like a sonofabitch). Wear long sleeves and pants, and for the love of all things holy some safety glasses!

you can rub the clearcoat off with thinners or acetone, and a whole lot of elbow grease.

spray-on paint stripper works best from what i've found (the stuff in the rattlecan) and a warm and humid environment will make it most effective.
try putting cling-wrap on the bit you're stripping to seal it, it'll make the process faster and more effective.
