    RRC Chrome Bumpers...

    So I'm desperate for a set of chrome bumpers for my 1990 Plymouth Blue Vogue.

    The original chrome bumpers appear to be NLA, has anyone had any experience chroming the original black bumpers?



    Just an idea that wa suggested to me so i would love some first hand experience from fellow Classic drivers.
    In V8 land we're better and we know it.

    I have had items chromed for decades. THe process is pretty much the same for all bumpers since WWII. THe are straightened, acid dipped then chromed using whichever process you are paying for. After a short cure or between platings they go through a polishing process... again depending on what level of quality you are paying for..

    I see you are in NZ too , If in lower NI Wanganui Platers are the best they do a lot of the hot rod guys work as , not all chromers are equal i had a a Mk 2 jag done elsewhere once it turned out bad the copper was showing through in places & they wouldnt redo them .

    Fwiw rrtoadhall is correct. The Chroming process is all the same.

    I believe I still have the stock chrome front bumper around the shop somewhere. Do you need one?
