Quote from: Tightlines666 on January 30, 2014, 04:16:23 AMThose parts came out great! What brand/type of chrome paint did you use..it actually looks pretty good w/o powder coating. Seems like removing the chrome from bronze or aluminum parts is actually not too difficult in many cases it can even be done w/a wire brush on a benchtop grinder, rather then having to sandblast it. I might want to ply around with trying to refurb chrome rings, handle arms, bases, and stars this way (1 coat chrome paint/1 coat clear). This seems to me like it might be a resonable alternative to sending parts off to be professionally chrromed, powder coated, or anonized. Also, do you have any experience, recommendations, or thoughts on how to effectively touch up reel rash on anonized aluminum? Maybe a metal flake aluminum filler, and metal flake paint? I'm thinking with the high cost of replacement of many if these parts on high end reels, it would be great to find a more cost-effective alternative. Any thoughts regarding your experience would be appreciated. Either way... Great job!

Have you considered the Ceracoat process, is it more expensive than this poweder coat process? Have you considered/tried the Duracoat process as well?Thanx,Leo

I definitely have a couple redo candidates. It looks like the Rustoleum product uses methylene chloride. The other option is benzyl alcohol, much less toxic and easier to dispose. It looks like SmartStrip from Dumond is available in the USA. Have you tried this stuff?
