    Using Easy-Off oven cleaner has been the trick for me. The can with the yellow cap is the stronger stuff and it can also remove skin like it does chrome. That's why I use the can with the blue cap. It takes a bit longer but it works pretty good without me losing any of my fingers. I put the parts in a plastic pan or a cup, spray the stuff onto the parts well and wait about 30 minutes. Then wash the parts and have a ball.

    Supposedly, the best stuff I've heard about is the old standby, Castrol Superclean. The big problem with that is that the stuff is way too corrosive for me and it presents a big storage and disposal problem.

    I love the stuff. It eats chrome up in a matter of minutes and is biodegradable. (Did I spell that right:confused:). Just pour the stuff in a plastic tub or a pasta sauce jar and put a lid on it. Store the stuff in a area where the kids or your pets won't get a hold of the it. Once the parts are de-chromed, I fish them out with a latex glove or a piece of coat hanger wire with a hook on one end then just rinse them in warm water and your set. Costs about 7-8 bucks a gallon which is enough to last you a lifetime...and then some. :)

    There you guys go again...foolin' around with caustic chemicals. BE CAREFUL that stuff can and will ruin your day. I've heard of a product called "wash away" I think that's what it's called. It's not toxic and is re-usable, it's a bit pricey but being you can use it more than once should off set that.

    Guido, you seem to be able to locate stuff online...care to see what you can find out?:confused:

    Ok guys n' gals. This is what I came up with: http://www.whink.com/wash_away.htm "or" http://www.bonediggers.com/1-3/strip/strip.html There's other stuff you can use, but you may want to test it first with some scrap sprue How To Remove Chrome . Simple Green in the one gallon consentrate. use this stuff straight also. Another would be Orange Clean if you could find it in consentrated formula. REMEMBER!! to test a scrap piece first. :)

    Hello all, I have been using Westleys White Wall Tire cleaner. It remove the Chrome really fast and is pretty safe, it can be used over but does slow the removal down the more it is use. It is so cheap to use. You can get a gallon jug from Wal-Mart. Parts go in Chromed and in minutes come out without it then wash with warm soapy water and your ready to paint.

    I use Mr Clean and place it in a small plastic container.. after 10 -15 minutes there done and then all you need to do is run the part under clean water and dry .
