    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.

                    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.
