Does minor pitting mean rechroming ?

I have a very old license plate holder that has slight pitting. Is there a way to get rid of the pitting or must I have it rechromed ? Wayne

The pitting is a hole in the parent metal under the chrome. There is no way to "get rid" of a hole without stripping the chrome, filling the hole with a suitable metal, and rechroming. More to the point, once you strip the chrome, you will find that the pitting is worse than you think.

Sure, you can fill the holes with something. The result will be spots that look like cheap filler. Your call.
