It's amazing to me how chrome prices and quality are all over the place. There just doesn't seem to be any logic behind it. The hardest thing I have had to deal with over the years with restoration work is finding some one that is consistent with quality plating.

Calco Plating
414 N. Wood
Chicago, IL

They are big on bumpers and other plating. Prices are good. Half what another qouted for some seat tubing for an Airflow.
Finishing Touch is excellent but expensive. I would use them on fine stuff but for bumpers, I dont think you can beat Calco.
Ask for Mike
