Default Chromiing Parts

Hi all,

I have a 1972 350SL that I am restoring and need to chrome both bars, door handles and boot lock.
Any preferred suppliers pitfalls to look out for?

I've used All Models Superchrome (Villawood)

Tel: 02 9727 5322
They are also known as Astor Metal Finishes.

I've had no problems.
They do things the old fashioned way and are not that expensive.

Thanks to you Michel, I did engage their services a little while ago with a certain amount of satisfaction. The result of the repairs and the quality of chroming were more than satisfactory. All that was, about two months ago.

Since that time, I was going to entrust them with some further work - to be precise, 12 pieces of front and rear bumper bar parts from a Chassis 109 car - 6.3 to be precise, although items from the Ch. 108 range is the same. The price quoted was close enough to $4.5K. plus GST - serious money. I entrusted another company with the work at a good saving. If anyone is interested in getting some chroming done at a fair price, with good quality, I will be picking up the items already chromed, but would be happy to take further work to them if I can get the parts by the middle of next week. Regards Styria

Hello Terry,

If you have not objection sending what you need to be chromed and I know you are located in the Sydney area?

Well I can suggest Hamilton Chrome here in Newcastle speak to Morgan.

Morgan re-chromed the panel of chrome on the boot of the 300SE superb job!

If you Hamilton Chrome's contact info Terry let me know?
