Default Touching up chrome on a 1950s oven

Hello all:

On one corner of the stove the chrome is peeling
and blistering. I am trying to find a repair kit for it. I searched
internet but could not find anything.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Al

I don't think there is any shortcuts.

There is no brush on or spray on quick fix. It will need to be stripped and replated. It will never hold up with the heat if you try it any other way.
