Anyone have chrome wheels stripped before? Donít want to be too savage on them as they will likely be painted afterwards.
Any places that could tackle this stripping?

Radfix is Galway have done bead blasting for me and they recently started vapour blasting as well. They do a decent job on powdercoating wheels, maybe give them a shout?

Didnít know he had moved but think Iíll give radfix a go this time round.
Thanks Joe, was down your way this morning with the kids at a hurling blitz.
We were well beaten by the bridge but the kids got crisps and sweets so they were delighted.
Fine new school getting built there, we had to bring half our school to get a team.

After a few phone calls to the above places and some more none were happy to tackle removing chrome from wheels.
Got a number for Tubular Steel Products on knocklyon road who says he has the capacity to reverse the process .
Has anyone had any dealings with the above company?

It isn't hard to do it yourself using reverse electrolysis.
All you need is a non-conductive container to fit the wheel in, water, salt, a battery charger (or similar power supply), and a bit of steel plate to act as the cathode.
I've done loads of it and it really isn't difficult.

If I had a bit more time on my hands Iíd be happy to give it a lash. How long does the process take roughly?

It depends how thick the chrome is, but most of the stuff I've done took about a day.
