Subject: [CR]Removal of Chrome

Busy restoring an old Viner frame and fork. Frame was painted so that was easy to strip ready for the respray, but the fork was chromed. The chrome is very rusted and beyond being saved as a chromed fork. Tried to have the fork glass blasted to remove the chrome but this had very little effect. What is the best way to remove the chrome ? Is sand blasting a better option ? or is there a chemical ( acid ) that can remove the chrome. Thanks Phil Grizic Durban ? South Africa
