You should post this in the 'scratchbuild' thread 'cause that's where all the kit building and painting skills live.

Chrome strips off in household bleach in 10-20 minutes. Test and time any you may have as different finishes vary wildly.

I hate paintbrush acrylic paint for anything. It dries too quickly and you can't get the coverage even. For every good wheel you eventually finish, there'll be 2 you foul up. It's like painting with yesterday's cold porridge. Flip knows how this paint got popular. Enamel model tins (Humbrol, etc.) are miles better and you can get loads of detail and shading going on. And if you make any mistakes a quick wipe with a cotton bud dipped in white spirits and blotted on dry tissue paper sorts it all out.
