We offer a reliable service for car parts, motorcycle parts, scooter parts, boat marine parts and household parts.

When we begin the Chrome Refurbish process, we begin by dismantling the parts if they have not been taken apart, this is something request for the customer to do before sending or bringing their parts in to our workshop. After dismantling all the paints, sealants and oils are removed, the parts are now ready to be copper wire hung in our electric chrome stripping chemical tank to electronically remove the original nickel and chrome plating, the parts are hung in the tank for a period of time until the original chrome plating is totally stripped off and we are down to the base material. All types of metals such as Mild Steel, Stainless steel, Brass, Die Cast and Aluminium have to have the original plating removed before we can begin to work on them.

We have restored 1000’s of parts over the years. Restoring parts is a challenge, a challenge we enjoy from start to finish.

Once we are happy that the original chrome plating is all removed we check the condition of the parts to see if the metal underneath has enough body and does not have too much rust and corrosion, to check if it needs any repairs, if this is something we have not already discussed with the customer then we contact the customer via phone or email to discuss the parts true condition and the repairs it may need to bring it up to standard, repairs usually mean welding and in some cases welding additional metal plates to build up the body of the part if possible, very rarely when we think a part is beyond repair we ask the customer to source the same part in better condition. If it is not possible to source the part because it's a very rare part then we explore other options, we speak with a local engineering firm to see if we can part build a section of the part and combine with welding and linish polishing in to shape. We do all we possibly can to keep you within your budget and to restore the part to its former glory. Now the part is ready for the remaining processes, beginning with degreasing the parts in our gas degreaser which removes all the polishing compounds and grease from the repair and polishing process, after it's cleaned the part is hung on copper wire and electroplated.

Please see our Process Gallery for all the steps your parts go through.

We can plate on to all types of metal including Mild steel, Stainless Steel, Brass, Die cast and yes even Aluminium. We have a dedicated pre-treatment plant for Aluminium which enables us to achieve high quality plating on Aluminium. There are not many plating companies which can plate on Aluminium as it is often very difficult to plate.
