Can someone explain to me what's going on here?
The rims have a goldish basecoat underneath the black topcoat and the laser is used to strip only the black topcoat while keeping the basecoat intact.. I know lasers are used as a common paint stripping method, but are there coatings that are impervious to this?

Well if your basecoat is more heatresistant that the topcoat I imagine you can set the laser to burn away only the topcoat. Nice example.
