    I've stripped a couple old Ambassadors with chemical paint stripper, and all I did was remove the valves and water key corks. Removed the lacquer, rinsed it off (and out) well and then washed it in the kitchen sink. Polished it with some MAAS metal polish from Wal-Mart afterward. Here's a picture of the trumpet after lacquer removal:

    As Dale realizes nickel is a different animal than lacquer and other finishes.

    Best wishes,
