Copper/Chrome plating

What metals can be copper or chrome plated? Galvanized gate hinges? Pot metal doo-dads? I'm trying to think outside the box with some creative exterior hardware and want to know what I can get away with. Thanks.

First step, find a chrome plating shop.
Step two, ask them.

Due to the EPA regulations, and the handling and disposal of toxic waste, the first step may be harder than you think.

I went to Google, and entered chrome plating, and a local town. I would post that result, but I do not live where you do. The moderators also remove most links.

No problem with the pot metal, but I doubt the galvanizing. The plater can remove it.
