Buy new ones or go to a junk yard and look for old ones. Because of the hours of labor involved in replating custom parts, and the very low cost of plastic molding, chrome plating 4 small plastic parts will likely cost you several times as much as buying new parts even if you find a totally honest plating shop operating on a shoestring of profit.

Remember the plastic 'eggs' that Legg's pantyhose came in? The chrome version of these fit the center of many custom wheels for a very cheap and slick looking center.
