You can get the wheels and mandrels on ebay. Look for 3M 07498 STRIPE OFF WHEEL/ERASER WHEEL WITH HARDWARE 3M 7498 or such.

P.S. I've tried a couple of cheeeepo wheels and all they did was make me mad.

I've got a bag of 3m stripper wheels. Funny you mention those, I just tried one. The reflective tape adhesive just smears though. Lacquer Thinner does nothing at all to it.

I originally bought it to scruff up my skoolie for the paint job and noticed it was also taking off the glue!

Hard to say, I haven't been driving it since we started stripping and prepping it, and before that I left it in the driveway mostly for the last few weeks since the city are being little bitches.
But the engine DOES seem smoother, quieter definitely.

I wish I had some 3M stripper wheels. The lettering is real hard to get off. Brittle too.

Hell compared to the reflective tape the lettering was a breeze. Five secs with the heat gun, and then I'd peel up a corner and the whole letter would come off as one, leaving no residue, or not much.
Guess yours got baked on a little worse.

AAaaannnnd, I'm officially allowed to park at my own home!



They were supposed to call and tell me, but I think they were ashamed after being so rude when I went down there.
Its a win, and I'LL TAKE IT!
