Anyone have experience brass plating existing chrome trim?

I had always thought about this as an option. Is it problematic to brass plate the exterior chrome on a vehicle (this is going to be a weekend driver)
opinions?

I see no reason not to do that..there is an outfit I believe from Portland Oregon that does that and it is gorgeous..

maintaining brass is not all that hard as I have seen a number of antique cars that have beautiful brass plated items..
