    I'm getting started on my Mirage custom, and am having trouble removing the factory paint. Specifically, the paint in the wheels. Here's a pic of what I've managed to remove so far.

    I'm hoping someone here would have some insight into how to get the rest of it out. I tried Easy-Off oven cleaner, but never let it sit for more than an hour. Should I use it again, but let it sit longer, or is there something else I should use?

    i tried the alcohol method last night for some paint which i had applied, but then i dropped the piece which screwed up the paint. i let it soak in alcohol for about 14 hours which stripped the paint i applied, but the factory stuff was still going strong. sounds like you need to soak for at least 24 hours, but see the thread above for more info. thanks!
