    What’s the safest way to easily remove chrome? I bought MP40 Hot Rodimus to transplant his chrome pipes onto my MP28, and in return I plan to take the worn chrome bits from 28 and paint them silver/light gray/white to match the AKOM deco of 40, but just rubbing it off with regular 91% alcohol doesn’t seem effective.

    Would soaking them for a few hours be better, or would that risk damaging the plastic? What about paint thinner?

    Soaking the pieces in Simple Green works. I used it to strip T30 Jetfire's guns.
