If somebody offers to blast it for you, don't let them. Chrome has to be chemically stripped off in a metal refinishing shop, the kind that does plating, etc. I had it done on a set of early monoblocks and it wasn't inexpensive. But the end result was great, the stripping process is apparently akin to a polishing, so the aluminum was perfect.
I never go far without a little Big Star
