Chrome Touch-Up

Is it possible to touch-up chrome? I have a new project ('71 Nova 350/350) and some of the small chrome, like the headlight bezels, is a little rough. I have seen replacement bezels for ~$100 a pair, or from GM for ~$180 a pair, but truth is the old ones are nice metal castings. I'd hate to replace them with some cheap plastic things made in China. Same goes for the "350" and the "Nova" emblems.

Thanks for the tips,

Dave

Chrome

Go here and you can get the chrome plating supplies to do your own chrome..bit spendy but it pays back if you find quite a few pieces that need to be done..

Thanks for the link, OMT. Wow! That stuff is expensive! I'm thinking it might work better for items that are no longer available.
