Battery acid stains

Is there anyway to fix paint and chrome stained by battery acid?

I was looking at a bike that apparently had a battery overcharged and exploded.

Unfortunately, the person did not act soon enough afterwards and the down tubes and chrome nearby is stained. I would assume permanently unless repainted and/or replaced.

Any magic formulas to repair?

There is only one way; re-paint and re-chrome.

Its battery ACID!
