I am rebuilding a car for my wife and she really wants the badges (metal) and grill(plastic) to have a Titanium look with out paint she will settle for satin chrome if the titanium is not possible. any help would be great

There is no particular reason that a satin nickel finish cannot be applied; the issue is finding a shop that offers the process. Automotive-quality plating on plastic is very involved, and you would need someone who can do the whole process but who also offers a satin nickel look. I think chrome-look paint may be a more practical approach where OEM quality is not required.
