Default Re: Something new and kinda sorta 100 years old looking

I'm curious how you de-chromed the parts you wanted to paint. I have an old Worksman wheel with enough rust chipped spots that I'd like to paint it, but have little confidence the paint will hold without some kind of special preparation. The other wheel I am building to go with it has a painted rim and I'd like them to match. So, what did you do?
Someday when I grow up I will probably lose interest in toys with wheels, but until then...
