Re: I need to remove paint of a sweater
If it is not to much you could use a light grade sandpaper (light grade but high number 120 grain or 180 maybe even a 240, really fine grain). The finer the grain the less the chance of causing noticeable damage to your sweater. Works good if you drip paint on a carpet too. Some light damage to the sweater may occur though but it is definitely not noticeable when used on carpets (to give you an idea about how much).

Preparation is a large percentage of the job beginning with has the door been painted before? If so how many times?
If the paint is chipped around the edges the best plan is to remove all the paint until the door is bare wood and a blowlamp and scraper or paint stripper is what gets the job done. If the old paint is particularly loose a Skarsten scraper is what you need to make a good beginning.
If the door has been painted only once or twice before and painted particularly well it will need sanding to remove runs, brush marks and any remaining gloss and to thin the paint thickness close to the edges. Defects will need filling and then more sanding with progressively finer abrasive paper.
Once the door is flat and smooth it should be wiped over with a damp cloth to remove all dust and the surrounding area cleaned. Visible knots should be sealed with shellac or knotting and bare wood primed with a thin coat of wood primer and when dry denibbed.
Next is a light coat of the correct undercoat and further denibbing/light sanding followed by another clean and a further (full) coat of undercoat and more denibbing, etc.
When applying paint it is important to work systematically and to thoroughly brush each new brush full of paint in every direction and blend it into the last painted area in order to obtain a uniform paint thickness and then finish each area with long even strokes in the same direction.
Modern paints dry or become tacky very quickly and so each fresh brush full should be laid without delay close to a wet edge and then blended into it.
The final coat or top coat needs special care because mistakes are difficult to correct without applying a complete new coat.
I hope this helps - it is a much abbreviated description of what usually takes a long time; spread over several days or even a week when allowing proper drying times between coats of paint.
If you'd like to know the original paint color of a vehicle to repaint or touch up scrapes, one of the ways to find out is by looking up the Vehicle Identification Number, more commonly referred to as a VIN. The VIN is a 17-digit number that can tell you practically all of the information about a car, such as make, prior reported accidents and color code. The dealership will be able to determine the paint code based on the VIN.
automotive paints require a good clean and well prepared surface like light waterpaper sanding to remove any oily or fatty resedu and the correct undercoat before applying a new coatings otherwise it will not last chipping or peeling will occur.
The best is to remove the tire from the rim, clean the rim to remove dust, dirt. oil etc. Remove any rust with a course sandpaper, sand the rim starting with a medium paper to a fine texture. Prep the surface to be painted and remove the valve stem (you will need a tool to install a new one). Prior to painting, wipe the surface with a paint thiner, prime the rim with a quality automotive grade primer. Paint the rims with your color choice in even strokes moving completly across the rim each pass, slightly overlap each stroke. Allow the paint to completly dry. To help protect the rim longer apply one or two coats of a quality clear coat to the painted surface.
