Then we could have our headlight and tail rings made out of plastic and have them chrome plated.

As soon as you find a product you like they will stop making it.

I got my grills done at Pot Metal Restorations in Tallahasee but they specialize in chroming plastic and fiberglass.

Unless you have some VERY unique center caps, they are available new from jegs, summit, vendors like American, and your friendly neighborhood wheel store. Here's 10 pages or so of center caps from Summit...

These are 60's Crestline wheels with new blank chrome plastic center caps and Studebaker "S" stickers in the center...

I know that Mr. G's has been doing it for years, also caught a segment on My Classic Car that I think Paul's in PA is doing it as well now.

Looking for caps for AP spoke mags from 1971 era. I will check with Summit as suggested. These have the A/P in the cap with black background.
Thanks for the help

Plastic parts on cars do not have chrome on them, at least originally. They have a sputtered or evaporated aluminum deposited on them in a high vacuum process. I believe that there are a few companies that are now equipped to re-do parts.
