I noticed tcb888 had posted a query about a stuck stem recently. Unfortunately I went one stage further as I could not move the stem so I took matters into my own hands and sawed the stem off

I read in another forum somewhere that if this happens the existing or left over stem could be bored out. Is this something that I could do myself and is this quite a straightforward job.
Also I had a look at the forks, thinking they were sprayed silver but they seem to chrome plated. How easy/costly a job is it to have them re-plated or is it possible to spray over with a different colour?
