Painting them with Alclad or having them plated by Chrome Tech USA or a similar company.

I had called Chrome Tech and asked about plating resin parts. He said he really did not like plating resin parts. I contacted The Little Motor Kar Co. and the owner said he has a specific way that he plates resin parts and has no problem doing them. I have about ten trees all ready to be sent to him!

I've had resin parts chrome plated by Chrome Tech USA and they came out great.
