    i need some help

    ok the other day i hit a kurb and scratched my alloy that i painted 1 week ago so i sanded it back with 400grit w&d no get rid of the flaking then did the hole wheel
    but i never took all the paint off then used filler and sprayed a layer of acid primer on and it cracked up all over the wheel
    so i was thinking its the old paint so i left it to dry over night.
    woke up this morning to sand the hole thing back to metal but now ther seems to be like a rubber coating on it if i sand it all roles up un the sandpaper
    ive spent two hours on it so far and have done about 10% of it
    dos any one know a fix for this

    get some nitro morse mate from halfords, or the cheaper stuff from wilkinsons, its called paint and varnish removed.

    that will remove the paint straight away for you and take it to bare metal.

    use a cordless or even a mains drill fit your dremmel sander into it and go for it,,then wen cleaned ,,superglue (or somthing) a stip of w&d round the end of dremmel sander bit ,,have a wee jug of water with u,,por some into bolt holes,dip end of drill with w&d onto water "carefully" to clean off the residue and prime for painting,,,,,,using nitrmors means loads an loads of washing afterwards so as to get all remnants of nitro off wheels as yer paint will turn s**t otherwise,,,
    LIVE COOL,,,THINK PINK !!
