I will say Shanes chrome job look very nice,the chrome looks to be very thick.
They did a nice job on Shanes bumpers.

When I was doing cars at my friends body shop we used Trenton Chrome in Trenton NJ but that was a while back and you should try and see if there still there. Maybe with all the DEP BS they might have been forced to close.

Guess I will start making some calls to see who and what type of finish works out best.

When I Google chrome plating near Allentown I see Apollo Metals, Steel City Chromium and North Penn Polishing and Plating. Any of those ring a bell?
I was mistaken. It was Librandi's in Middletown. Shane had recommended them. I only talked to them on the phone and got a price. They seemed to be fair in their pricing.

Thats good looking Oklahoma chrome!!
If you do the job,please think of the guys here and take a few pics!

And of course you know,like all paint work,the prep is the most important part.

I would rather be starting with a factory chrome bumper as the factory steel painted bumpers are not quit as smooth. I have some spots that I will need to grind and smooth before I lay down the black base....I will be sure to get some pictures of the project....
