Hi All,

I have a set of VX Calias alloys which the clear has gone to sh*t.
I would like to know if anyone has removed the clear so its just the alloy?

Any tips would be much appreciated.

Thanks
Luke

Interesting. I will try paint stripper.

What kind of wheel is that? A light polishing wheel?

por15 make a wheel restoration kit which includes a special stripper, polish and clear coat. You can buy it from most specialist auto paint shops.
