I am going to have a number of parts plated. Does anyone know a source for a vendor that knows how to plate Camaro parts with the various correct materials so they look acceptable for concours judging?

What parts need plating?   I've been using BrakeBoosters.com, http://brakeboosters.com/services.htm for many parts other than chrome or stainless polishing.  I've been pleased with the work and turn-around times.

There also are home kits for black oxide and phosphating (Parkerizing) that are inexpensive and easy to use.
If you have a small sand blaster to prep the bolts before hand then you can very easily refinish them at your pace.
