What is the most effective method for stripping off the factory chrome plating?

There are more things to strip chrome than you could shake a stick at... But I use Greased Lighting, its a bit stronger than 409, I put the part in it and within three minutes the part is stripped. Then just rinse with water.

EZ-Off oven cleaner is the typical favorite & works well for me.....but I've started using Castrol Super Clean with good results.
I've found the biggest chrome or paint stripping challenge is the silver/aluminum paint on some of the SnapFast/diecast-type models in place of chrome plating......the parts have had to sit DAYS in EZ-Off, and still need lots of work with fine steel wool after that!

I'm with Gasser, Greased Lightning is great for chrome. Has anyone tried it with removing paint?
