I have a Datsun 280 ZX. and the rims are all scratched and not nice at all. I want everything on the car to be original and are hoping to find someone to re-chrome them for me. If you could write me back and give me some information that would be greatly appreciated. I am a senior in High School but I am working on this car with my dad who is more than willing to help me with it. Thank-you for your time.

I am looking for a place between Frankfurt and Stuttgart, Germany who chrome-dips auto wheels. chrome-plating is okay, but dipping preferred.

Ed. note: For the record, Jason, there actually is no such thing as 'chrome dipping' in the sense of dipping an item into molten chrome as if it were chocolate. All decorative chrome is applied by electroplating the item with nickel and then electroplating it with chromium. Certainly, however, some plating shops do higher quality electroplating than other shops.

A. Hi, folks.

You can use our Jobshops Directory to locate plating shops in specific areas. A further source might be Hemmings Motor News [affil. link to magazine on Amazon], where specialty suppliers to classic auto enthusiasts often advertise.

Unfortunately, if these are aluminum/mag alloy wheels, you may find the restoration cost unacceptable. It's a complicated process and the old issue of labor cost is a killer. Whereas new wheels are processed dozens at a time in automatic plating lines, restoration involves fighting with the details of each particular wheel one at a time. Frankly, you may find that replating costs more than new wheels so, unless they are really special or of sentimental value, it may not be worth it.

We have an Introduction to Chrome Plating on line if the subject interests you :-)
But best of luck either way!
