Yes, it works on chrome plating . . . but that wasn't the question. TF wanted to know if you could use Coke to strip silver paint and this article doesn't mention Coke's paint stripping qualities.veedubb67 said:
Nothing beats Coca Cola to strip chrome. It may take its time (between 24 and 48 hours), but it strips everything and it doesn`t attack polystyrol.toyroy said:BTW, I've used vinegar to strip chrome plate. Gotta watch it, though. It works fast, and starts to attack the plastic surface. I haven't figured the ideal dilution, yet.
I haven't used this product but a little Google research seems to suggest that Dawn Power Dissolver is a low power version of Easy-Off - which would add validity to Robcomet's comment.robcomet said:I've used something over here in the UK called Fairy Power Spray. It's marketed in the US as Dawn Power Disolver. It doesn't damage styrene in anyway shape or form and generally takes off paint in about an hour or so - it may need a little scrubbing with an old toothbrush.
Jim I've used it. I'll say one thing; IT WORKS! I used it on some old hotwheels cars for the ultimate test. 15 minutes later all I had to use was a paper towel to wipe of the 30 yr old enamel. I had to go back and resoak afew tough spots and scrub them with a tooth brush, that was an extra 30 minutes of soaking. Just don't get it on your hands or in your eyes; the usual safety tips apply.Arronax said:I haven't used this product but a little Google research seems to suggest that Dawn Power Dissolver is a low power version of Easy-Off - which would add validity to Robcomet's comment.
Anybody tried it here in the US?
