    This is a basic rundown on how to remove the red painted chrome from Generations Leader Class Jetfire:



    Is it red underneath that chrome?

    No, it's plenty red. It's just my personal choice.

    If I had the patience I'd paint the entire thing white as well.

    I painted it as well. I found the unpainted plastic sucked in too much light.


    (Posted below are more helpful hints from our members from the original discussion on chrome removal. I hope you find it helpful! ~Superquad7)

    Thundercracker addes that "this stuff will remove chrome from plastic as well":

    Hikuro adds here that he "used that to weaken tampo print and other kinds of paint before. It left some odd gritty residue on a repaint I wanted to make and dulled over time. Guess it's just one of those things where you gotta be really careful. Otherwise that's not bad stuff!"
