Default Re: Striping paint off and seal bare metal?

Or do this to remove the chrome. Put three gallons of water in a plastic bucket. Add one cup of Muriatic acid (water before acid Visa Versa it will explode) use three large copper wires and hang them into the solution connect them to the negative terminal of a car battery charger for a ground. Then connect the item to be stripped to the positive (using a coat hanger for the dipper is a good idea) then dip the object into the solution and wait a few minutes. Be careful when removing because this is a viscious acid, you dont want to touch it at all. Your chrome should be gone by reverse electrolysis. Dispose of the chemicals in an acceptable manor...O and you don't want to do this indoors, unless there is some serios ventilation going on.
