Default Any guesses on cost to chrome this?



My antenna bezel has always bothered me so Iím going to run it over to Sherms in Sacramento to get it re-chromed. Any guesses as to how much they will want? I have no idea.

AAA Plating in Sacramento is charging me $30. Will be ready Friday. I’ll post a picture of their work.

FYI: Sherms quoted me $45 (their minimum) plus all these environmental fees.

Sometimes less if you put it in with a bigger run. Got some trim pieces for the 'El I need done, are they any good?
Only place I know of is Astro Plating in Van Nuys, their plating looks like spray paint lol.

Iíll let you know. I know Sherms does a great job but they are expensive and have long lead times.

It really depends on whether its by itself or with other parts as most of these places have a minimum. By itself maybe 100, with other parts could be 40.
