Looking for a recommendation for a good rechroming firm, distance no object.
Back in the sixties, when my car was born, quality control was at an
all-time low. But even so, the shiny bits lasted for at least ten years
before they started pimpling. Lasted long after the body had fallen apart.
Over the years I have had quite a few bits rechromed. In every case they
looked superb on arrival - but never lasted. A year or so at best.
Current situation - all my chrome, replated five years ago, is in a mess -
always treated carefully, washed and waxed, no abrasives but even so is now
resembling a teenager with acne.
There was a pretty good article in Classic and Sportscar (or might have been
Octane) recently about how rechroming should be done, with a list of people
who do it. But.... does anyone on this NG have any personal experience?
Ideally, a job done some ten years ago which is still in good nick.
Bit like looking for a reliable builder or plumber, I think, but I'm sure
the assembled wisdom of this NG will point me in the right direction!
