Most things can be metallized with silver paint, colloidal copper or graphite, or a two-part silvering solution. Vendors include Acheson Colloids. More info is available in our FAQs. But you haven't mentioned anything about the actual application--and the durability of plating applied onto these kinds of metallizing systems will not match the durability you see on OEM automobile components which are metallized in a multi-step vat dipping system.
