Man....You will not only have to remove the booster to chrome it...but you will have to totally dissassemble it also. Unless of course you are going to buy a booster that is already chromed.

When I had a Corvette ( a 65 Big Block Convertible ) I bought a GM service manual ... I consider a manual a invaluable tool ...
