Nickel can be removed with vinegar+salt a piece of stainless steel and 12 volts of current at 180 degrees.
If the flash accessory shoe and knobs are actually chrome. The chrome can simply be removed down to the nickel using muriatic acid bath room temp less then a minute. Use baking soda and water to neutralize the acid

My very early Leica II, with two of my favourite screw mount lenses.
A 1952 Jupiter-9 85mm 2.0 made from Carl Zeiss parts, and a nickel Voigtländer Heliar 50mm 2.0.
The Heliar is like a modern rigid Summar, I really love it.

Yes, that nickel Heliar looks great and does evoke the rigid Summar. Too bad they made only 600 of them!
