Plasti-Chrome Removal

You know the stuff....Its on just about every modern "chrome" grill & trim piece on cars & trucks.

The crap chips,bubbles and flakes off. Im sick of looking at it.

How do i go about stripping the plasti-crome off,without ruining the trim/door handles & grill?

The plan is to re paint in the color of choice.

EZ off oven cleaner. im pretty sure the one with the yellow cap is the better one. best to isolate said part and maybe wrap it in a bag. it also takes off paint.


some say purple power works, also heard brake fluid works but takes a lifetime. i have used EZoff with good results.

If it is peeling from the plastic i dont think ezoff will do the trick will it? EZ off is like the draino method and just strips the chrome from the nickle. If it is just the chrome and the nickle is good and attached well to the plastic, you should be able to use the Ez Off method.

If it is not peeling, then rough it up with a scotchbrite and paint.

The nice thing about using EZ off or Draino is that is actually strips it and oxidizes it allow the paint to bond better. I used to do it through electrolysis and this would really activate the Nickel.

Thanks for the replys guys.

The "scuff & squirt" method is working fine for the smaller pieces that arent flaking. Ill have to try some Ez off on some of the bigger & more damaged pieces.
