Hi,

Does anyone have a good solution/idea on how to plug/seal a muffle before it get rechromed? Also, how and with what do you clean it inside?

These guys do a good job with re-chroming pipes in the USA. Someone there may have a good answer for you.

I guess you need to flush with water after using caustic soda? I really dont like the thought of using water inside to avoid corrotion.

It's the process that all chromer's on this side of the pond use.

As I guess you know, not all chromers will chrome two-stroke mufflers unless, maybe, you catch them when it's time to change 'the soup' in a tank anyway or some may use these to plug two-stroke muffflers during the process.
