    I would like to know if anyone has removed the grayish paint completely from the wheel barrels? And if so they look like chrome under the paint....can you remove the paint and leave them that way and how would they look??

    A bit messy method but using aircraft remover can remove the paint. Then use acetone to clean the barrels before polishing them.

    Don't expect it to be shinny chrome once you remove the paint.
