Depends on what it's painted with ?. Could be old style cellulose in which case it could possibly be removed by using cellulose thinners/ gunwash.

Just make sure you don't leave on longer than is needed to remove the paint. 

If it 2 pack you may need to use xylene thinners with 0000 wire wool.

Or as ditchy says if your wanting them black get some fine scotchbrite pads and rub down wipe with panel wipe and rattle can them satin black

Thanks for your advice guys .the paint is flaking off them I do want to do them black. I just don't want to damage them as they will be hard to replace. The car is a 1984 Audi coupe gt 20210523_135113.jpg.cb6542b00c4defabd82aafed762dbb98.jpg
