Wheel painting?

Currently i have stock aluminum alloy rims on my stang. I just bought a powder-coating kit and im thinking about powder-coating my rims. Does anyone know how i can remove all the clear coat & ect to get the rims down to bare metal?? I dont have access to a sand blaster, what other ways can i get the wheels to bare aluminum? (Not a fan of paint stripper, but might use it.) I heard aluminum is very soft & you must be careful on what you choose to do. Can someone give me advice on what will work? Thanks, here is a pic of my rim
