    I have a Beast Machines Ultra Jetstorm. It's chrome has deteriorated badly in the last few months. I've been trying to remove the rest of it so I can repaint it but I'm having difficulty in removing the rest of the chrome. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    I've used the easy off oven cleaner before and it works quite well. Put your part in a plastic container, spray it in, and wait 5- 10 mins or so. You'll be able start to see it crack. i then take an old toothbrush and scrub the parts, rinsing with warm water. repeat.
    This may seem like it takes a while to do, but it goes pretty fast, especially if it's larger parts like you're talking about.
    before you apint i'd wash the parts really well, and maybe even alchol wipe and clear coat it to make sure you have a nice paintable surface.

    Randy!
