Actually, the original was plated, but this is good enough for me.

 The lights that came out of the 300 were not plated, but the ones from the New Yorker  with the clear lenses were.

Interesting.  Cut corners where they can I guess.
 
You probably will never notice the difference.  Whish I had a garage big enough to work in, then I could do a serious restore like these two 65's are getting.  But Polaraco dodn't come out too bad.  4 years later it's still holding up.

Other than the snake charmer down in Arizona, I think it's safe to say we are all space challenged.

At least you can fit yours in your garage!  My 'vert is too long for my circa 1930 "two" car garage.  I've got my '64 Goat in there and it barely fits!

thanks for the tip.. i tried the krylon chrome in order to restore the reflectors of my tail light and it worked out fine as well. don't have pictures though but it works a lot more decent now.
