Very cool. Thank you for the tips. Did you use a brush for the black painted sections? I've been soaking my Jetfire pieces in SuperClean for about 30 hours and it's almost completely clean of chrome. I didn't use any denatured alcohol. Just the SuperClean and it worked great. Found it in the automotive section of Walmart. Here's my question: Does anyone know how to remove the chrome off his gun? The gun has a metal spring inside, so I don't want it to corrode. Has anyone tried anything?
