Castrol Super Clean!!!!! Nothing beats it for removing chrome and leaving the plastic alone. You can get it at Wal-Mart in the automotive dept. I've tried brake fluid, cola, and various other methods and none can come close to it. Just be sure to wear rubber gloves when using it, as it can cause a nasty rash and burning sensation.
And yet another method is the yellow can of Easy Off oven cleaner.
Wear safety gloves and spray outside or in a very well ventilated area.
It should only take 15 -20 minutes to get the chrome off. Leave it in longer if you want the clear coat gone too.
magesblood, no disrespect was intended. I just wanted to offer a different alternative. I do like your idea and will be trying it out next time I strip chrome. I like the fact that as a modeling tool it is more of a green idea.
Problem is I don't drink soda. But a leisurely walk to the nearest machine can cure that.
Thank you for showing that link as an alternative. I hadn't known that method.
