Default getting things re-chromed?

This would be considered a "school me" thread...

I'd like to get the bumpers on my Karmann Ghia re-chromed one of these days. does anyone know about how much it costs to get things re-chromed? what kind of prep do I have to do? (can I just drop'em off, and they'll blast and re-chrome?

And...who around the Denver/Boulder area does such a thing? What are the questions I need to ask?

thanks!

Back when I had things that chrome was acceptable on the best place on the entire front range was Fort Collins Bumper and plating. Not sure now....

I'm interested too. I have a bumper and a bezel that is chrome now that needs to be rechromed. Remember OEM chrome is OK

Call places that work with lowriders and/or street rods and ask who they recommend (I am serious!). I do believe there is a clause in the RS SOP's that state anyone who chromes hinges and other Cruiser parts will be flogged with greasy speedo cables and require proof of test driving Jeeps in low range, windows open, through TLCA events in order to be considered for further club involvement! Consider yourself WARNED!

Should have made this clear up front - it's NOT for the cruiser!!!

I called around several places in town when we needed our clawfoot tub feet nickeled. Many send the stuff out of town to do, due to emissions and EPA stuff anymore. Found a small shop that was also the cheapest, and quick turnaround too, just call around and describe the job and they will likely give you a phone quote.
