Can anyone assist with how to strip chrome parts? I am building a Tamiya1/12 scale motorcycle and I want to strip the frame and repaint using Alclad. I've never done it before. I've heard oven cleaner is good. Will any one do? And how to apply? I wasn't sure if I just cover the whole thing in it and leave it for a while (if so - how long) or if I work it on with a toothbrush? And if not oven cleaner what else will work?
I have a real fear of melting the frame so any help gratefully received.
