Called a chrome shop in Caldwell Nj the other day and about 30 seconds into the conversation he says if repro is available just buy it....not the most friendly guy.... anyway then he says take a pic of my parts and email them to me and ill get back to you. That was a few days ago and im still waiting. its cool some times it takes a while if you have a lot going on. In the mean time anyone know of a good chrome shop in north jersey to call?. I know theres a lot around the country but would like to use some one close if I can.

I can only assume that he suggested repro because his price is going to be much more then the repro part. In other words don`t waste his time as most people don`t get the work done after they find out the cost and they buy the repro part.

I find the people in the supply end of the biz are order takers. Knowledgeable salesmen that can upsale you are hard to find.When I bought my truck and added the chrome package and Alcoa wheels,I would think the salesmen knew the wheels didn't come with centercaps & lugcaps.Should have told me and sold them to me for another $1.25 per month.......... shruggy

Are you looking for a place to do some rechroming for you? If so, NONE of the places listed above are even close to being in that business - those are chrome retailers for class 8 truck chrome - stacks & such.

Its over 10 years ago, but I'm pretty sure we used a place called Keystone for very decent driver quality straightening and rechroming of a '67 barracuda rear bumper. I *think* it was in Newark.

Exactly, esp if it's potmetal, the cost to dechrome the part, pit repair, then rechroming, it's the labour end that soars the finished price, and most shops don't want to hear about the whining on old potmetal pieces if they're lost in solution going thru the rechrome process, I've always been told by platers over the decades, "if it's available repro/NOS/new, buy it" for the above reasons...
