Chrome Plate Plastic

Gold Touch   J G Nikolas   M and M Metallizing

(2001)

I am looking for someone who can help me with chrome plating black plastic mirrors on my truck. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

Clean parts, spray with Krylon Brass Metallic Paint [linked by editor to product info at Amazon](dry-1 hour), copper plate in acid copper solution, then simply finish with nickel and chrome electro-plating. Do not use chrome paint it will not work.

Good luck,

" . . . simply finish with nickel and chrome electro-plating . . . "   -- easy for you to say :-)

Thanks, Philip, but that technology is far beyond the reach of most hobbyists. What Malcolm more realistically may need to do is to send the parts to a plating shop if chrome-look paint is not adequate.
