I have reshaped the beavertails on two of my CZ's and thus required a refinish (hardchrome).
Techplate is local to you and very reasonably priced for hardchrome; if you bring in stripped down parts (bare frame, disassembled slide).
They will strip off the poly as part of the deal.
That's really great information. Thanks!
