Chrome suppliers

Hi guys looking to get some chrome work done in the Hamilton/Toronto area and was looking for recommendations from the brain trust.
Any input or experiences of who’s good and who’s not will be welcome. Not looking for 5 star show but good for driver.

Ive not used them as I prefer a black anodized look myself but Ive heard good things about cambridge custom chrome. Chrome plating is not cheap.

update on chrome suppliers, I took my seat hinges in to Plating House for pricing. Hinges were totally disassembled and they priced 8 pcs $1400.00.
WOW.

Will be trying Cambridge tomorrow.

Will update
