What's The Issue With These Lowenharts?


 Share

Recommended Posts

What's up guys, so I was given these wheels by a family member. They don't have an exanation to why the wheels look as they do, and I'm trying to figure it out as well.

I recently painted the wheel to try and make the wheel look better, and it came out great, I'm experienced in spraying so that's not my concern. I just like the machine finish look of the wheels. So I decided to remove the paint using Aircraft paints stripper, in hopes that what my original problem was, was actually some sort of film or clear coat that they applied, and that possibly the paint stripper would remove, allowing me to relolish, and then just clear coat it to see how it would look. Well after about 6 times of applying that stuff, different lengths of time all minimum of 15 minutes. The paints all gone, job successful but, this film or what not I'm talking about, didn't even get fased.... Does anyone know why the wheel has become this way? And what my options may in fact be? Thanks a lot guys. Take a look!
