The actual de-chroming is done with acid, but you can get satisfactory results with Scotchbrite pads. Either by hand or on an angle air motor. Just need to rough it up enough for the primer to stick. The pads come in 3 or 4 different grits, 2 and 3 inch diameter. I use the roughest for best results. It's harder if the chrome is flaking. Just more work.
