    Remove Old Decals from Chrome

    I wanna remove the old crusty decals from, I believe, an Schwinn chrome fork. Don't want to hurt the chrome. They aren't under clearcoat.

    I should be alright using heat *** and, later, goo gone, right? Any better method?



    I'm sure this has been answered before...and I looked...but all I was getting was people wanting to remove decals from their chrome Pistas under clearcoat, which was getting frustrating.

    Chemicals and heat from a heatgun will not hurt chrome. Abrasion will ruin chrome.
