Need help with clear coat removal...
i have a set of rims with polished lips, and on one of them has a clear coat or laquer, how can i remove that? brake remover? if so, what kind of brake remover? because thats what someone did to one of them and the clear coat finish came off, and i tried it, and it didnt work. If I can use brake cleaner, exactly what kind?
