Looking For A Source to Chrome Plate a Grill in Model Building Questions and Answers Posted June 24, 2012 From someone that has had 10 racks of parts plated and is currently prepping another large batch of parts to send off to Little Motor Kar, the results are directly related to the amount of prep work and careful mounting of the parts. When removing mold seams and imperfections, your parts must be perfectly polished out or any scratches and flaws will show in the plating. It's just like body work under paint. I've had a few parts that I have had to re-do because I didn't get the parts fully polished or there were flaws from improper mounting. Regardless of where you send your parts, follow the instructions on Chrome Tech's website.
