TOPIC: Stripping Chrome

Stripping Chrome 3 years, 4 months ago #1

Hey everyone, does anyone know the best way to strip chrome off of a headlamp shell? I guess that a shop would probably do it for me, but I was thinking to try and do it myself. Any suggestions?

Well, you could do the whole wet and dry technique, but if it were me, I'd be worried about causing damage and probably just leave it to the guys at the shop. If you have a good garage or restoration guy, I'd let him take care of it.

I agree. Taking it to a garage or a guy who does that for a living will more or less guarantee that it will be done properly. I would be deathly afraid to do it myself when you might not be able to replace the original headlamp...maybe it depends on the make/model/year of the car...?
