Guys/Businesses who re-chrome usually can de-chrome also

Sandblasting works well on removing chrome.

Very very toxic process.
Take it to a local chrome shop, they will do it.

Re: Removing chrome plating

Having some Satanic BMX isn't gonna make you Ride any better...
Because Satan's not in a Bike, he's inside all of us. In here. In your Hearts....
He's what makes us not want to go to Work, or Exercise, or tell the Truth...
He's what makes us want to Party and have Sex with each other all night long...
He's that little voice in your mind that says "F-you" to the people you hate...


+1 to THAT
