Chrome Plating

PostPost by: Matt Elan » Mon May 14, 2018 10:27 am

I'm looking to get a batch of bumpers, spinners, door frames etc chromed - has anyone on here used S&T in Yate, Bristol or Silvabronz in Alton and if so what were they like? Or are there any other recommendations for chromers in the southern half of the UK?

I had a lot of bits done at Silvabronz quite a while back, when they were based in Kingsley, just down the road towards Bordon from Alton. They did every chrome piece on an E Type I had, and nearly 20 years later when I sold the car, it was still like new.

I've only head good things about S&T in Yate as well. They do a lot of stuff for custom bikes, and the customers are fussy....and big!

I've used S&T a few times over the years as they were just up the road from where I used to live. I have no problems with the quality of their work. Pricey and not quick turnaround but they will do anything.
