Chrome Plating

Postby BobbyMel » Sat Jan 15, 2011 11:23 am

Hi, anyone know where to get things rechromed in the North East of England. I know of Quality Chrome in Hull, but was looking for somewhere closer to Newcastle Area.

Thanks Bob

Hi, spoke to Cleveland Chroming, and they dont do any custom chroming now. They said the guy who did the polishing left suddenly 2 weeks ago. Not looking to employ anyone in his place.

Therefore still looking.

Thanks Bob

Hi, yes you were lucky. Now looks like I will have to post items to Mancheter for chroming.

I used Nuneaton Fine Finishing to do the wheelnuts on my Firenza, plating job was good. Only problem I had was that when they cleaned off the burrs it left the wheelnuts in a limbo-size, not quite one size or another, so I've had to get a six-sided socket and line it will nylon to grip properly.
