    possibly superclean from walmart. itll be in automotive, in a purple jug. i know i soak plastic models in it for days, and it wont hurt plastic. it will remove the chrome from a plastic model grill within ten seconds. plus a toothbrush will remove any leftover paint. i have soaked some stablemaxx rims for a week to remove other paint, but it wasnt chrome. paint was floating on the top when i took the rims out a week later.
