Real chrome on plastic

Recommended Posts

I have had 2 of the T-type emblems vacuum chromed last year and they have dulled & lost their chrome look. Does anyone know if reproductions of these are for sale anywhere or is there a place that can plate chrome plastic with real chrome ?

There are a few places that will rechrome plastic parts. It's a vacuum process that requires specialized equipment. I've heard good and bad about Mr. G's. from other Buick sites. CV Vacuum Platers, in British Columbia, was an outfit that I used with excellent results, but I believe they are no longer in business. Another source that was doing a lot of CV referals is www.instrumentspecialties.com , 401-267-0055. Another source to check is www.chrometechusa.com , 608-274-9811, but I have no experience with iether.
