Question Re-chroming

Does anybody know where I could get parts re-chromed? I was thinking about doing my door handle triggers. They are very pitted. Handles seem fine, though.

Is this possible and if so any idea what it would cost?

get out the yellow pages, turn to chrome shops, put on a blindfold, and pick one. they all can do good work, or kill your part. depends on planetary alignment.

Can you buy just the trigger? The reason I didn't want to go new is because of the cost of a new door handle. Plus, mine are fine, it's just the trigger.

How about swapping in a black trigger? Can you really see the trigger anyway?

Hi,

Call Jose Ramos at V & C Metal polishing inc. He is in N. Hollywood at 8239 Lankershim Blvd. #F. (818) 767-5170.

He did AMAZING work on my Alfa parts, both chroming and stainless. Made my pretzels back into bumpers. Also did all the work on my friends multi show-winning 55 Chevy.
