hi,
Got some chrome that is peeling (yes properly peeling off, possibly a previous restoration that went astray).
What alternatives are there to rechroming? Rust damage is significant if only on the surface, is there something that I can use that looks vaguely silvery/shiny or am I going to be looking at a tin of hammerite silver or a significant replacement programme?

Hi

If your going for a full strip down and refinish how about chrome powdercoating?

Cheers Pete, I'll have a look. Have you used them yourself and if so any idea of costs?
