What I've done successfully, for years is to bead blast gently with low pressure, and follow with emory cloth. The pealing is a pain but you can smooth that out with the emory cloth. The worse problem is when the chrome doesn't peal completely, it just lifts and buckles, looks kinda like paint stripper on enamel. And that stuff is razor sharp so be careful

Have fun,

Gene
