Paint Off Springs

I use to take off the paint off my springs way back when I use I had a B2. I used paint thiner and something like brake cleaner. Thought I would let all you guys know gasket remover works by far the best. I sprayed it on Monday eve. today I just wiped it off with a rag. I bet it would of come off as easy yesterday I just forgot about it. P.S don't get it on your hands. Someone should try it on there tires LOL

did you take the paint off so no one would know what you were running?

NICE. I have been looking for an answer to that for a while now...Tried all kinds of chemicals with no luck.

Crusher - It looks better than all the different neon colours on the car...and it keeps you stealthy!

So, then by removing the paint from half way up the spring you can create a progressive spring rate?
