I need to know how plastic parts can be coated with chrome finishing? I need to know how it's done and what type of equipment needed. Who can I contact (e-mail) to get more info.? Thanks.

Chrome plating of plastics is a very complex & difficult process; I don't think there is any possible way to learn it by e-mail. I'd suggest that the first step is to acquire and read a book about plating of plastics like ASEP's "Standards and Guidelines for Electroplated Plastics". Good luck!
