I remember seeing something on TV a while ago, they can do it, plastic can be chromed, without getting into details i know you can,
Google - its your friend ;)

Where abouts are you at Moff??

Theres a place in sydney, not 100% sure where abouts, look it up in the yellow pages, or like its been said google.. just type in plastic crome - ing/ers...

I was looking to getting some of my interior done a few weeks back, but the guys wanted to see it, or me to take a photo of it with something like a coke can, so they could see how big it is.. but I CBF doing it, so ehh!!


Definately possible, most likely not cheap, but it will look sweet... That crome spray paint looks like ass, may as well just get a bright silver can, its about the same - but half the price...

Hi Guys new here. My mate got his old Monaro dashboard done by a fellow called Mark Goode, he cleans up the parts and gets them vacuum metalised somewhere in seaford. I think he's even done fiberglass bumpers to look like chrome. Will find out his number if you want me too.
