If you don't mind me asking about how much was it to have them chromed. Got some fenders that I would prefer chrome instead of powder coat.
I do all my polishing myself .Thats the expense in chrome and takes alot of time. to dip with nickel and chrome ,I pay min charge 100 cdn

Thanks, that sounds reasonable enough, comparable to powder coat prices.
its the pre work that expensive cleaning rust removing paint removing the chrome sanding polishing removing every scratch and pit I spent a lot of time prepping some ware around 30 hours.Chrome does not hide anything ,the plater I use is industrial does thousands of parts a day ,table legs, chairs. racks.His building is about 60 thousand sf and about 60 employees and nothing goes down the drain,its green enviroment.If you take it to a plater make sure its clean and expect to pay for the time they spend prepping
