brisbane chroming recommendations
« on: August 01, 2022, 05:32:33 PM »
I've got a B44 with a dull header pipe.  Any recommendations for rechroming in Brisbane, reliable more important than a cheap job.
Cheers, Mike

Wow!  I guess this means there is not one decent rechromer in the southeast.  I had hoped there would be at least one who was OK.

Many (re)chromers have given up over the last few years ,mainly due to environmentally laws  , but also due to many people not willing to pay for a proper job .They hand in a rusty piece of metal and expect a better than new condition  piece back .Eroded surfaces sometimes need to be copper coated a few times and polished,before the final layer of chrome can be applied.

You could give Tranzac exhaust a call and ask them as they are in Brisbane and get chroming done almost weekly.
