It took a total of about 3 hours to do both wheels. Just tape off what you don't want stripped,get some aircraft stripper brush it on let it sit for about 15 min. then start rubbing with steel wool. The wheels have a satin aluminum finish from the factory under the paint. You can polish them to a mirror finish if you want but I like the satin look.
I took them off,makes it easier to work with. It is hard to **** up if you take your time and tape off the centers well(if you want to leave them painted) Just make sure you use a quality masking tape and put a couple of layers down
