A. SORRY BUD. THERE'S NO SUCH THING. CHROMING INVOLVES COPPER, nickel, AND CHROME TANKS. WITH DRAG OUT TANKs, etc.ROB MCKAY

I would like to correct you on that. I work for a powersports store; we sell mostly streetbikes and superbikes. We also do Chrome plating. We do indeed use a chrome plating machine and there are many that do exist. They run anywhere from $1000 dollars to as much as $10000 pending on the size of the machine.Devin DeAngelis

Hi, Devin. There are paints that are bright enough that some people erroneously call them "chrome", but they are NOT chrome plating and have nothing at all to do with chrome plating. Does the machine you refer to do copper electroplating, followed by semi-bright nickel electroplating, followed by bright nickel electroplating, followed by electroplating with hexavalent chromic acid -- or does it simply spray on shiny paint? Please stop calling "chrome look paint" chrome plating. Otherwise we're going to ask you to try one flight on a 747 that has your "chrome plating" on the landing strut pistons, and your widow won't be happy :-)
Hi, Steve. Start with our Chrome Plating Tutorial. Good luck.
