« on: April 01, 2009, 12:17:22 PM »

Any of you guys in the tri-state area, have any bumper chrome shops near you?

Stan, THANKS!  I'll call 'em tomorrow, since they don't have a web site.
 
Bobby, YOUR tri-state, MY tri-state,,,,,,,, as close to me as possible!

Use to be a huge bumper exchange shop in the southern part of the state, Leonard's Chrome Plating.  I modified a 2nd generation Dodge PU bumper and they rechormed it for $200., in '03.  Now, they quadrupled their prices, and is doing nothing but antique/Street Rod chrome.

Rick - there's a bumper chrome place not far from me in Syracuse - last
I heard their prices were still reasonable.  The problem is the
demand has dropped now that most used cars have )*@^&%! 
plastic bumpers. Not much call for inexpensive chrome anymore.

Yup I know the place.But do not expect "show" chrome.They are cheap and you get what you pay for. They can do show chrome provided you are prepared to pay for it.

Roger, you got a web addy or phone # for that place in Syracuse?
 
Stan, the Jaw-jua phone #'s have been dissconnected.
 
The bumper boyz out there won't do larger truck bumpers.
 
What I have is a '95 F-700 with the orginal tires and only 25K miles.  It came from out in the Amish/Minnite country in western Ohio.
The truck is VERY NICE, but has NO options (chrome)
I have to try and make a stainless grille, but want to see if i can get the bumper chromed.
Any truck yards, most of the bumpers are bent/tore up

EXACTLY!  Except, I'd like to have those (hubs) wheels.  I could easily get the polished 'loomnum' Budds
Where the running boards are I have twin 50 gal tanks on each side.
Mine has the 6 spoke type wheels.  Some fancy painting, and a polished stainless hub and bolts, and a set of those satinless wheel nut covers, is about as far as I can go.
 
Naw, black wouldn't look right.  Gotta have CHROME, or shiney polished something
 
Hobby, what in the world are you talkin' about?!

That's why I posed over here.  I wanted answers.  NOT several squabling about it being off topic or some silly notion like that.

Another alternative is to have them powder coated "chrome"! Mikey Waltrips #55 Nascar wheels are done this way as Nascar says "NO chrome"! I've seen this stuff and it looks great and it won't chip off! It will be a whole lot cheaper than doing that size of bumper in chrome that's for sure!  Here's a sample: This place has some pricing for a bunch of items,no bumpers,but i'm sure they or anyone can do em' http://www.eastcoastpowdercoating.com/index.htm

Rick:  I'll try to dig it up, I picked up their flyer last year at an auto flea mkt...it's around here somewhere.

Lea - the kind of bumper chome place Rick refers to isn't about show
chrome, they used to be a service to crash shops and used car lots for
quick & cheap decent looking bumpers at low cost - they used to
keep re-chromed bumpers in stock for exchange on popular models...
Keystone was a prime example, they might even still be around.
