Gino, save yourself all the hassle of getting parts 're chromed. There are shed loads of spray chroming products out there like Alclad and AK etc.

My favourite is C1 Polishing Powder. Prime your parts, spray gloss black and when dry use the polishing powder. Buffing it gives a really nice realistic chrome finish and is less susceptible to handling afterwards. A tub of it will last for ages.

For other polished metal finishes I also have some S&J Aluminium Polishing Powder that can be used in a similar way, and also Graphite Powder is also worth experimenting with, but works better on a matt finish, and most hardware stores should stock it.
