Default Re: Removing caked on stubborn rust from chrome MIJ hoop

Hey Jay
Fully agree with OB and W123. All great approaches. Looking at the pictures, I have past experience and a feeling as the MIJ hoops will have no shine and be basic metal afterwards. They were not made that well that once you scrape down, remove with solvent, etc the hoops will need to be re-chromed. There are a lot of hoops out there that you can replace them with. Taking the inlay out to save it should be pretty easy with a hair dryer. Good luck
