Not exactly , I’m looking for a place thaynpoloshes stainless just like you would on any stainless to put on a car but then it gets flash plated over that which in turn gives the atainless the same color sheen as chrome . Gives a more even flow on a car such as a 59 Cadillac that uses a mixture of chrome and atainless sometimes in the same moulding line .

Um, don't they do that? They electro-polish to remove impurities and dirt....

Thanks but looking more for a custom stainless , chrome shop . Someone that can straighten repair plate etc . This place looks like it’s more of a production shop .

Why not talk to them and find out for sure?  Looks can be deceiving, as we all know from being in this hobby.

Stainless properly polished can look like chrome.

 

It can shine like chrome but has a slight color difference compared to chrome , that’s where the flash plating comes in to play . Polished stainless has a slight yellow hint compared to chrome with a hint of blue .
