Freddy ..haven't decided on mine yet ,but I know this ,if using traditional method ,check that they copper coat first ,put screws/bolts in threads nothing worse than going to fit up with a thread full of chrome ,if using PVD method ,have to prepare job yourself ,some may do prep ,bloke near me doesn't ,he also has chemical supply delays from USA..probably doesn't order enough as it early days for his business.he specialises in plastic chroming ,like all new cars are ..cheers vern

Hey Freddy,

I'm going to engage Wizard Chrome at Narangba, I have no affiliation but have seen there work and it's pretty impressive. Pricing isn't to bad either but would still think you'd need to budget $5K to do a complete car.

I recently used All Metal Bumpers at Ingleburn in Sydney and was quite pleased with the results, they did a good job on the diecast parts.
Some areas on close inspection could see some faults but I am not building a show car and the cost was reasonable when doing a bulk lot job.
