    Paul - Have you seen their chrome on plastic? Is that who you used for your rear light surrounds?

    Didn’t realise it’s for plastic,I sent mine off to the states,as I sed before proper process is called vacuume plating and it ain’t cheap and there are not that many people in the states that do it,if you are spending thousands on doing a car up I think it is worth spending a few hundred pounds getting it done,it’s the postage that’s a killer as well

    No, its proper chrome plating for the FRP bumpers, first needs to have a good smooth level surface, you then coat it in several layers of conductive copper paint and I beleive flatten tham back beetween each layer, after that its like normal chroming, first nickle then chrome.

    Surely there is a plater in the UK that can do this.
