It is a nice thought, but not practical. Chrome is an environmental hazard, nasty stuff to be around, hard on clothes and the body, and at times very picky. For your intended use, it requires at least a double nickel pre-plate and would require a copper pre-plate if you want a highly buffed surface. All of this costs money to set up. Disposal costs even more. The local environmental folks will be all over you on a regular basis. Lastly, the information you need fills an entire book. Check one out of a library, as they are not cheap and you probably will give up this idea after you have read the book and done a cost benefit analysis.
