Sorry for the delayed reply! We're out of town and I just checked this. I haven't prepped mine for paint yet. I plan on doing that when I get back in town. In regards to stripping the chrome, all you do is spray the oven cleaner on and let it sit for a minute. Then, spray it with a water hose. It's that simple. You can always spray it again if all of the chrome doesn't come off on the first attempt. In regards to the turn signal buckets, I taped them off to protect the chrome however, you have to be careful because they will fill up with water when you spray them off and that could potentially cause some cleaner to leak down through the tape and cause some of the chrome to come off. That happened to mine but I'm not worried about it since I'm going to be installing dummy projectors over them.
