I want to return my car back to the way it was when it came from the factory and I did all these changes that I don't like anymore. I like it just the way it came... naked and WONDERFUL!

WOW

thats all i really gotta say, stages we go through growing up, mine was subwoofers and the occasional neon light,

but hey suits his own, to remove that paint get a heavy duty degreaser get some nice hot water, and soak it for a while, go to the coin carwash and spray away, the metal to metal might be a biatch, but itll work off

good luck

Well, I actually cook at a restaurant so I utilized our power washer after work tonight and did quite a bit! Alot of that "chrome" is gone and I can see the good ol black again. Day 2 of power washing will resume next week. I'm going to get the rest of it off. I'll post some before/after pics when I'm done. I'm overall excited about the result thus far though! I used one of our metal grill scrubs along with the hot water. I'll try degreaser next time and do it in the daytime so I can get EVERYTHING

well that sound like your going in the right direction.

anything that doesnt come off. I would hit a junk yard for parts.
and you can always paint parts black again.
