im doing this right now. i think there should be some additions to the list u need. GLOVES are a must. the aircraft paint remover will burn ur skin very bad. a paint brush to apply the remover helps alot. a wire brush helps get the tough paint spots come off. steel wool also helps scrape paint off. masking tape hhelps keep the index cards on the wheel. the wind kicked up and blew them away. im doing my LS meshes and its not as easy as the fat fives that were used in the example. it is definetly taking longer to get the paint off

aircraft is the brand.

i used the mag and aluminum polish when i polished my cousin's ls meshies.
turned out great.
just use a drill attachment or some shit
cause doing it by hand is a pain in the ass.
