Who is doing a good job rechroming bumper? My bumper is a bit rough and the local chroming business closed their doors a few months ago. What are you paying and what is the turn around time?

Thanks

They weren't that good anyway...

I am curious who else is in somewhat close proximity now that they folded up.

$340 each ... check to see if the "chrome" wipes off with paint thinner !!!

That's awfully damn cheap!

Were you happy with Phoenix Metro? $340 wasn't that cheap. Denver Bumper was $225- friend had a resale license.

Tri City Plating in TN does nice work, if you go to the Nats they will be there and you can exchange the bumper and save the shipping cost.

I checked with a local place in sw PA... I ended up going with AMD bumpers because of the price.

200 to 225 without a resale license at Denver Bumper but that was with little or no prep work required. Holes, deep scratches and dents cost a lot more. I held off long enough until they were a empty lot
Bumper Boyz comes to the swap meet at the Denver Coliseum every February. They deliver a lot of bumpers to area restorers. I could not examine their quality very close as they kept them in wraps. At least you can save some on shipping and on traveling east of the Mississippi for Nats.

These guys do GOOD work!!!!! Turn-a-round time is more than reasonable, prices are fair, and the quality of the workmanship is very nice.

I've used Tri-City for years (they just finished 5 more for me) and no complaints. No waviness, choppy surface or crusty edges. No rust or ugly backsides. I always get back the bumper I provide with flawless finishes, plus a life-time warranty.

Sitting in front of Tri-City, truck loaded and ready to go!

Another vote for tri-city plating! Just sent a bumper for a 56 jag to them. They've done 3 other sets for me. 71 RR, 69 RR, and 70 Dart, also my friends 70 AMX.

Around 425 each, shipped. I simply send a bare bumper via post office for about $30 in just shrink wrap. they hate me, but Tri-city told its the cheapest way to send prior to plating.

Only in Colorado where you can legally buy marijuana and can't get a bumper rechromed...

Good point. In Seattle you can do both, but each one will cost dearly. 8 years ago a cuda rear bumper re chrome cost me $700.

News reports are now saying that pot drug dealers will still be in business because legal pot will be extremely expensive. (And no, I don't partake)
