    Hey guys

    I got a quick question. I my nephew has some vehicles that have paint apps on chromed plastic sections.. Is there something i can use that will remove the paint without harming or dulling the chrome below it .. We want the chorme to stay bright and shiny after i remove the paint..

    Any suggestions on the best stuff to use ?

    Thanks in advance :)

    I cant get a pic right, its not one i own but my nephews. But yeah im positive its paint , its racing decals that are badly done so he just wants to remove them and leave it shiny chrome.

    Ok cool i will tell him to try that .. It's not an exciting toy or anything , just a chromed nascar looking car that has all its paint apps messed up on it so he wants to just remove the really bad ones on it.. Ill try and get a pic of it to show..
    Thanks for the help :)

    isopropyl alcohol 70% concentration
    seems to the the most likely to work.
    It's the mildest paint remover recommended so far on tfw2005.

    as ridiculous as this sounds, i was able to use some crest kids toothpaste to get rid of all the "rust" applications on the 07 movie '77 camaro bumblebee.
