Removing Bad Chrome Plate

Need help/advice.

I have some unique suspension nuts etc on a race car I'm renovating that
are/were chrome plated but the plating is flaking off. At least I assume
it it is Chrome plating. I've tried wire brushing, filing, sanding, bead
blasting etc but all fail to remove the sharp edges from the flaking

Is there a safe chemical way to remove it? Or a better mechanical way?
I'd be happy either to remove all the plating or just the flaking bits.

For refinishing I'd be happy either to re-plate or just to paint. What
plating finish is best for such applications?

Thx for any and all recommendations.
