Re: Plastic Chrome Plating in Florida

I don’t know any in Florida, the one I used previously retired but here is one in NY state I believe. I’ve never used them but vacuum plating isn’t an everyday thing.

Re: Plastic Chrome Plating in Florida

I was referred to them locally...I've seen some of their work..it looks top notch....but not cheap....I couldn't afford what they quoted...my parts wernt even worth 1/3 of what they wanted to replate em...
Theres another place in Birmingham called Precision .....https://www.precisionplatinginc.com
