Chrome Plating Bridgestone Fuel Tank
« on: November 07, 2018, 07:03:13 PM »
Since Brown's Plating doesn't exist anymore I an looking for a chrome platter for my BS 60 Sport fuel task.

I am looking for recommendations.

Thank you.

Randy,

For my last two projects I've used Atlantic Coast Plating out of Athens, TN.  You can find their web site easily on the Internet.  They do a lot of "show chrome" work and the last two tanks they did for me are the best chrome work I've ever had done.  The first time I used them they phoned me after they had my parts and talked to me about double-dipping the copper layer.  If your tank has some significant pitting, the second copper dip fills in everything nicely and really makes the final finish smooth.  I guess this takes "triple plating" and makes it a four step process. 

I'm sure you'll be pleased with their work.

Randy,
I have seen the work which was done to Rowland's parts and it is terrific. I have not had any done lately but will use these folks for the next work.
Later Mike

Randy - a couple years ago I provided you with a chrome Plater in Texas. I think the POC was a guy by the name of Angel. Do you recall the name of this company and a contact number ? I’m working on another high end Chibi and TAKA restoration and need a good chromer.

Regards - Kevin
