I have been searching online for information on where to get bumpers rechromed and am looking for advice from anyone who has had any done lately.  I've seen a lot of good reviews on Jon Wrights Custom Chrome Plating in Ohio which is a doable day trip for me if I go with them.  I live in the Grand Rapids Michigan area and would prefer to drop off myself but if anyone highly recommends anyone else I would also be willing to ship.  Any references / comments would be greatly appreciated  -  dave

Ogden chrome. I send everything to these guys! They do all kinds of plating. Brushed nickel, brass, gold, and of course show chrome. I have always trusted them for my higher end cars.

Tri City did mine as well in October of last year.  I drove them there myself and had them ship back to me.  They did a great job and they were back at my house in 9 days.  Some distance from your location.

I checked Ogdens site, looks really good too.  Since both are too far to drive will be checking their prices and delivery charges and go from there.  thanks again  -  dave

  OK so for bumpers I Used Keystone ,   I smoothed up the bumpers  got rid of the bolts  , They  picked up and returned . I don't know who actually  plated them   but they really came out sharp , Sounds like you are doing this car up right . If you get to the point where you need a NOS truck flipper, ... P. M.  Alan
