Strip exhaust coating off ?

What to strip the coating off the collectors and the silencers. Off the 1299r Having more of a Raw Works look.
What is the coating? Niclkel coated of some kind?
Been researching SODA, Vapor, and Walnut blasting....... not sure which way to go?

Any advice?

Tried wet sanding...... didn't make a dent in it ?

I use bead or sodium blasting on certain metal parts when I rebuild guns, gives a great finish on its own, but gets finger tip sweat marks easily, I do this process before I ceracoat a weapon for a client.
I sodium blasted a engine block for a bud of mine recently who is re building it he was going to spray it with enamel, but afterward decided to leave it as it is.
This blasting can be done at any or most glass places if you don't have access to the equipment.
Let us know how it goes
