Hey ash,
Another thing, while getting the chroming done, I got swindled once. It seems chroming can be done in two types, one method is plain buffing and the other method is dipping the portion in a chemical and then buffed.
i got my kinetic clutch cover chromed and it faded in just three months, but when i got it done the second time by a person my friend knows, it is still shiny even till today, oh anyways i sold my kine, but saw it . don't do the same mistake, enquire and then get it done.
