View Full Version : Chrome plating

A question rather than a suggestion.
Anyone had a good experience with getting the Alfa runners re-plated, and willing to share their experience/contact?
I have seen it mentioned in the odd thread but guess this would be the right place to record it for easy reference.

Thanks for the pointers guys.
£70 sounds reasonable to me.
CJ suggested to me earlier that it might be a good idea to get a few done at a time. If anyone else is thinking of having any done then get in touch here or pm me.
If you have any old runners lying about then let me know.

Old runners? Think I might have a David Bedford somewhere at the back of the shed. Prob not the easiest thing to plate, but deffo leave the socks out.
