Put them in a jar with some laquer thinner and let them set a couple of days and it will wipe right off.

Grinder with a wire brush tool will strip it. Or you can boil them in water with some Rit dye tossed in to color them whatever you want.

It has been said that removing the powder coating changes the spring rate.

Put them in paint stripper for 10-15 minutes and it will wipe right off.
