    Alloy wheel refurb / tart up advice required


    Can someone give me a wee bit of advice on refurbing my wheels. I am going to renovate my wheels. Apart from the fixing of the kerbing damage which I think I can have a go at without too much hassle, the main issue is that the clear coat is coming off the dark area of the wheels ( see pic )
    Question 1: What's the best way to remove the clear coat from the dark areas of the wheel? Wet and dry, paint remover?
    Question 2 : Should I be painting the black areas or just re apply the clearcoat. The black areas don't look damaged to me.

    Any advice would be very much appreciated.
