Rechroming
« on: February 11, 2012, 08:13:02 AM »
Who do you guys use out there for your rechroming needs? I believe Bruce once told me there's a real good shop in Langley. The guy I use is good but not very reliable as of late and I need some stuff done to high standards by a certain date.

The shop I recommend is Superior in Cloverdale.

http://www.superiorelectroplating.com/

In the past, people would bring me their door handles and locks for assembly after plating.  This let me see the work of a couple of local plating shops (Dependable, and Pacific).  And all of it was sheer CRAP.

One day when Airspeed parts was still around, I had a chance to see some parts Jim Coma had done at Superior.  The parts weren't a little bit better, they were in a league of their own.  Well beyond the junk others were producing.

Superior is the best. Their shop doesn't look like the best place ever however their work is amazing! They did a few pieces for my car and they came out great!
If more power is better. Then too much is just enough.
Why do it once when you can do it thrice?
