Bumper rechrome help

I am about to have my 66 Impala bumpers rechromed. I am having trouble finding reviews on vendors. Who would you recommend especially for quality?

Advanced Plating, Nashville, Tn. They only do show quality so expect to pay, but they are GOOD.

I've heard very good things about Tri City Plating as well. Around $300 to rechrome a bumper.

That is a lot cheaper than my neck of the woods. Replating a good 65 Mustang bumper is $450-500 each!

Thanks for all the feedback. I actually looked at 2 of these companies. Cost vs. quality is always a big decission!!

How far are you from Mexico. Talk to some of your local car club guys, some in my area send out a bunch at a time, No EPA = cheaper and many times very good quality.

Superior's quality was excellent, the cost for two Maverick (skinny) bumpers in '08 was $745 including shipping both ways.

epa costs

When we were making OEM parts for Harley. the LA plater moved to Arizona because of all the hassle in Calif. and the Dry air would evaporate the water out of his waste and he could send the dry residue to reclaimes. a lot cheaper than barrels of wet solution.
