You all must be using the wrong paint stripper or are trying to get if off too fast. Sometimes you have to re-apply the stripper to the stubborn spots several times. I have never had to use sandpaper. I do use a Scotchbrite pad to remove the stripper so the paint dosent bulid up on a rag. After cool water rinsing, rinse it with hot so it will dry quickly. I think 4 hrs was the TOTAL time I have ever spent masking, stripping and cleaning the wheels. Then 2 hrs max to polish the rims.
Also take the tires and brakes off, don't get that stuff near the rubber, bad news!
