    ok.. so i got some GT3s on a trade a few weeks ago and they were rattlecanned flat white.. decided to strip them, fully polish and resale.. at first i got a clear and base remover in a spray can... it stripped the lip fairly easily.. flaked up the paint within a minute and worked great.. the center portion of the wheel is giving me hell though.. i've since went and bought the stripper in the quart can.. caked this on and its barely denting this shit.. i've used the same stuff before on wheels and it worked great.. this time, not so much.. tried the aircraft spray stripper, nothing.. good thing i found out, is that the lip were never sanded there is that much less i dont have to polish.. :D

    Is it the stuff from Home Depot? If so I've had the same problem with it.
