Paint stripper and chrome(2 posts)

Paint stripper and chromeOhmmm
Apr 24, 2003 5:45 AM
This may be a stupid question, but I just want to be sure. When using paint stripper on a frame, do I have to take care to keep it off the chrome? Or will it not affect the chrome? Are there any certain kinds of stripper that I should avoid? (I can already hear the jokes about that one) Also, are there any good painting resources on the web or elsewhere, besides that one Mindspring site?

paint stripper will not hurt chrome. just be careful when scraping if the chrome is flaking or in bad shape. I've used Jasco, but only because it was what I had on hand. some of those citrus based strippers are nicer to use and should work ok.
