Subject: [CR]stripping paint question

Anyone ever strip the paint from an older frame that was completely chromed underneath in order to "create" a chrome bike? And if so, what did one use and were the results worth it? I guess one thing that I have wondered about in this process, never having seen one that I recall, is the chrome underneath as durable or of the same quality as the chrome that shows on the forks and chainstays on many of these bikes?

Thank you.
