We had someone come to us who is in the process of restoring an old BMW. He wanted to have five rims powder coated. When we tried to media blast the old powder coat off, we discovered that they had an epoxy coating under the powder coat. We then turned to a chemical stripper. After spending time in the stripper, we were able to power wash the epoxy off.
The customer chose to use BMW silver and a low satin clear coat on the wheels.
