...The vinegar is still soaking, but not a flake is missing or will rub off...
After 48 hours about 95% of the chrome had come off in the vinegar bath. The part remaining still wouldnt rub off though.
Think I am going to stick with 409 as the best indoor product for removing chrome for now. It is relatively fast and cleans up with warm water and soap easily.
Just paint the chrome white with plastic model paint. Like many race cars were doing when chroming was too costly...I did it on some rims when I was just a teenager, yes back when dinosaurs roamed the earth....
Finally found the product used in the video! Two for one at O Realys auto house. We then went out to the new big Wally World and they had gallon jugs of it in the automotive section for just a buck more.
I have been using the Super Clean exclusively for over a month now.
The chrome starts coming off within a few minutes and is mostly gone in 10. The rest will easily wipe off or wash off with water. I have also let it sit over night and there was no degradation of the plastic or any detail loss.
The liquid darkens over time, but continues to work effectively.
I am using a Rx pill bottle that will hold an entire chassis piece as my soaking container.
