I think your problem is that the stripper is taking the chrome off under where you have glued. I use Mr Clean kitchen floor cleaner to strip my chrome. Lemon smell. I usually put it in a small clear glass and watch the progress. I generally just leave it over night.

The bond between the plastic and whatever you have epoxied to the chrome will only be as good as the bond of the chrome to the plastic. The epoxy can't magically penetrate the chrome. You should always strip chrome from any areas you're going to glue FIRST, no matter what kind of glue you use.
But you're in luck. 5 minute epoxy doesn't have any strength anyway. Take it off, do it right.
