I bought some fabbed aluminum BBC valve covers awhile back and I'm wanting to polish them up but they have a pretty stubburn clear coat on them that is causing me grief.
I'm wondering what's the best way to go about removing the coating so I can make these babies shine.....

Thanks in advance>Cp

P.S> I will post before and after pics.

Thanks, I kinda figured it may be caustic, I'll use caution.

Wonder where a guy might get some of this stuff, I live in Memphis Tn, reckon a body shop/paint supply place might carry it?

Ok guys, first off thanks for al your help, I ended up using easy off oven cleaner to remove the clear coat then I just polished them up with Mother's mag wheel polish, it was labor intensive and messy but they turned out pretty good.


Here are before and after pics....
