Ie profile HUBS?
cause hubs are aluminium and they are more than likely polished.
JUST PAINT THEM.

If its cranks then stick them in a vat of hydrochloric acid for 6 weeks.

you cannot just strip chrome. Like was stated make sure it is chrome.
Trade parts, sell what you have & buy new ones.
With the time, effort & cash you would spend trying to strip the chrome. You can get painted ones & buy some heavy paint stripper at an auto body shop store.

You CANNOT buy aircraft stripper. All the standard places that sell it just call it that. it is no different than regular stripper..with one exception...the price tag.

Chrome and paint are different it wont work.

chrome is done with a chemical reaction, it hardens the metal creating a harder outer shell so to speak. So no paint stripper aint gona work. But you Can get some sand paper and sand it off, or at least scratch it up to the point where you can apply some primer and it will stick.

Well for one..you need a permit & cannot get REAL Aircraft paint stripper just anywhere.
2. Look real close again at that video you posted. You may or may not see it. If you knew about it, you would not have posted. but I will tell you anyway. Klean-Strip's named "AirCraft Paint Stripper" is the particular name for that stripper line. Notice the ® after aircraft.
"Aircraft" is just one of their lines of paint strippers.

Just because it says aircraft, does not mean it is stripper used to strip paint off aircrafts. I KNOW. I was HAZMAT forman for 2 military bases & have dealt DIRECTLY with REAL aircraft paint stripper/ remover.

You WILL NOT find LEGIT "MIL-spec" aviation paint remover on the open market. Permits, paperwork, etc make it a PITA to do so. You can however find paint remover for small personal aircraft. Which is nothing like "Aircraft" paint remover. The REAL aircraft paint remover is very specific because it has to take off paint, decals, etc without damaging the panels. The shit you put on wheels will eat right through the panels. Hence...NOT real aircraft stripper.

Aircraft is the brand dumbass. They aren't saying it's used to strip plane paint, which is the same as regular paint. No one here had plans of stripping a fucking aircraft? Idiot.
