I found this to work pretty doggy gone good. It requires a cheap Harbor Freight Oscillating Multifunction Power Tool. It also requires self adhesive heavy grit sanding disc and a flat plunge blade. Cut the self stick paper to fit the bottom side of the blade. This will get the entire area between the spokes and tight to the spokes without any damage to the wood. It cleans it fast and also gets rid of the rust underneath the paint.

HI Tim, it works great I think. The tool was about $20.00 at the time I bought it. Either way the tool is a very handy one to have.

You can also wrap the spokes with duct tape and sandblast the felloes.

I think you will find it works great. My rims had 8 decades of slopped up paint on them. This took all of about 15-20 minutes to clean the rims up. Don't forget to get a course self adhesive sand paper for it. Let me know what your experience is on this Tim. Enjoy !

I also use duct tape, blast and ready for epoxy primer and paint. Ken
