It'll definitely take paint off, it just depends on how you set the laser. It shouldn't touch chrome, but it would removed degraded chrome plating. The laser is vaporizing the rust. It relies on the fact that rust absorbs of the energy, and bare steel has some significant reflection. So the rust/paint is ablated leaving bare steel underneath.
