I noticed the grey paint flaking off and showing chrome on my 9C1 center caps. Anyone have a relatively quick process to get all the paint off?

Hey Cash, how about trying a soda blaster? It will remove the paint and not touch the chrome.

You're like me in that respect. Tools. Get your Harbor Freight fix.:grin2: I have the HF blaster and got the soda attachment. I used it to remove paint from my spoiler and some of the paint on my car. I didn't have to remove the glass or tape things off.

Actually I have a speed blaster that I use with sand. Maybe I can open the nozzle partially and get some soda media.

I'm sure I won't need a 50 lb bag. Going to see where I can get less. Harbor freight and Eastwood are local so I'll see what I can find.

Apple cider vinegar because it doesn't smell as bad, I tsp salt, a green scrubbie, and an hour of your time.

That's what I'm talking about. Soak it in the vinegar or just use it as a lubricant when scrubbing?

Use it as a lubricant while scrubbing. I don't know why it works better with a tablespoon of salt but it does help.
