got the chrome parts soaking. man that stuff works great. they have only been sitting for an hour or so and are almost completely stripped. I got the body parts primed and drying. Trying to decide right now what color to paint them.
Glad to hear that stuff is working. I love it. Cheap too $1 a bottle.

what are you guys using for chrome stripper? i use castrol super clean.... how long does it take your stuff to work? and im sure it is cheaper than castrol......its like 9 bucks a gallon!
The name and stuff is listed in my thread Bryan. Used it today. $1 a bottle.

Chrome is all scrubber, rinsed, and stripped. Also got the main body parts primed and are about ready to start glueing, may leave them to dry a little more over night.

Starting to look like more than a thought !
sometime a thought is a powerful thing, lol. hardest part will be cutting the opening for the blower and air scoop, the hood is kind of small. im thinking i might try that cotton thread method for this.
