Anybody have any headlight bezels chromed lately?  There is a young guy fairly new with his business nearby me and I was pleasantly surprised with the quote of $125 for my '72 bezels.  I pick them up in several weeks and will let the forum know how they look.  My bezels are in decent shape (for the Southeast) with just minor pitting.  Just interested in what others have paid.

My bumpers were around $400 each from Tri-City in TN, but they do not chrome pot metal.  I will see if this local place is interested in working on my Magnum 500's also.
