    anyone know if you can use ceramic coating over chrome? And if so how? Or how to remove chrome? Read an article on it said use 40% muriatic acid solution? Don' t want to do sand blasting. Any clues anyone ever done this? Help!!! Lol

    From what I have read this is a highly toxic and should be done at a prescribed vendor. Are you trying to do thid yourself?

    I would take it to a plating house for stripping. I'm sure it is a toxic mess, gases poisonous too.

    If you have access to sandblasting equipment I would suggest that, you would not have to deal with the danger and toxicity of hydrochloric acid, which btw is 37% technical grade.
    I have never tried to remove chrome plating but sanding seems like the easiest way for a DIY

    How long does it take for the 40% muriatic acid way to strip it?
