Hey guys,
I have wanted to get my Front Grill on my hood re finished cause its got chips galore, and I have also wanted to get my front headlight trip painted in the same chrome colour finish as my grill.

Is there any place that anyone knows of where I can have this done in the GTA?

Any places, thanks!

I just had this done for my bumpers.

I thought these 2 places were the best

The Plating House (Concord) or Jim's Polishing & Buffing (Scarborough).

Jim's Polishing & Buffing (Scarborough) is one place I went to a number of years ago to have a strut bar chrome plated.

They did a fine job, but it took a couple of weeks!

Note - chrome plating is ULTRA, VERY PHUCIN' expensive!!! The preparation work, dipping into many tanks of chemicals, and buffing is time consuming.

Given a choice, you'd be much better off buying a new part from a BMW dealer. Plate ONLY if you cannot buy new!

How much do these guys charge?

but also, the thing is, i don't really need to have metal parts chromed and polished, i just need that chrome paint done to my front grill to give it a new luster shine.
