    Re-chroming Door Handles etc (Die-cast Mazak parts)

    Has anyone found any decent companies that can repair and re-chrome these bits for a reasonable cost?

    i'm getting quoted around 50 + vat each for rear light surrounds, door handles etc, and about 10 per letter on the ford badges.

    the same companies are quoting me between 180 and 350 + vat for bumpers.

    either that or they just dont seem interested even though they advertise themselves as mazak specialists.

    Yep, R&S Chrome in Manchester did my MK1 door handles. 4 years later they still look good. Pretty good service.

    Carefull with the light surrounds and my pal had his done and when they stripped off the old chrome, by what ever process they used, there was bugger all left of them.

    Ah i see,,, So you are aware they can disintigrate during the process, its just you never mentioned that, only price and that you were looking for decent companies.
    I was trying to help...
