We've used Pauls.  Very good but slow and very $$$.  When we first started dealing with them it was about $325 to do a front or rear Camaro bumper, now it's about double that for one.  Good chrome platers are getting harder and harder to find.

My front bumper is currently at a rechromer in El Paso, TX now.  The cost is suppose to be  $175 + freight.  This bumper was in very good condition when I shipped it and won't require much rework.  I'm suppose to get this back the middle of next month.  I'll let you know how it turns out.

Good luck,

The plating business is getting very expensive.

Thanks one and all, I've have decided to repaint the lid black instead of chrome plating it. You are all correct, finding a good inexpensive plater these days in very difficult. The time, costs and disposing of the chemicals used is quite a burden on them from what I was told. I found one plater that would do the lid, but it would cost $100 dollars. I didn't pay that for the complete closed element air cleaner!!!!!!!!!!

I second that.  I too have to many vowels in my last name "AIELLO"  But who needs to go to Chicago there is some great real Italian pizza right in Racine and Kenosha.

Dave you can't leave out DeRango"s,  Infuison's , and Dino's. The wife and I just went to Infuison's tonight.

 Who gave you that price for the chrome? I have two lids I would like to have chromed also. Maybe we can get them all done for a better price. What do you think?

 Also are you going to the Elkhorn car show swap meet this weekend?

Mike:

Sorry, the plater actually was someone who painted parts that looked chrome. And he lives in Racine. Does it part time, has a shop near Boucher's Chevy on 11. I passed after hearing $100 and it was just paint.
