Icon2 Removing paint.....

Hey guys. Ok so as my name says my prelude is black. My friend painted my rims black for me. But all he did was clean them and spray the paint rite on. And like every 2 weeks I have to touch up the paint on them cos it always chips. I need to know what is a good product to get all the paint off? And a good adhesive to spray on them to keep the paint on w/o chipping alllll the time. If you could direct my 2 a site or just let me know the name and the product and where I could buy it at I would really appreciate it. Thanks in advance. I love you guys!!!! (No homo) lol

Re: Removing paint.....

well sandpaper is good at getting old paint off, that's all i use and if there's some paint that doesn't come off chances are it's not going to chip off either and as long as you clean and degrease the wheels properly after sanding and then prime them before paint there's no reason why the paint would chip again

Re: Removing paint.....

What kid of paint did he use? spray the rim down with aircraft remover and make sure not to get any on the tires. Then do this

How do I know if its the rite sandpaper(i've heard of different kinds or something being different about it) and any tips on how to sand the tire down guys? And how I know im doing it rite? Sorry for all the questions. I just wanna make my rims look good.
