Can anyone help in providing contacts / details for getting good chrome plating done in Delhi / NCR. I've tried a few, but the plating hardly lasts beyond a season. I doubt if these people do a copper plating job, even though they claim to do it & charge a hefty amount.

I was reading a very informative article on Chrome plating. Read on, and it says that two coatings of copper are desirable for a good show quality chrome. Also, nickle plating matters more than the final layer of thin chrome plating. Would really help if someone could advise on a good chrome plater.

Thanks.

Though not a bright chrome, but still informative link for maybe mechanical parts - Electroless Nickle plating in Pune.

I am aware of very good electroplating jobs being done by an enterprise at Hyderabad.The quality of job done is excellent and my fellow car owners from Nagpur dismantle and send the spares to Hyderabad for getting the job done.
If any teambhpian hails from Hyderabad he or she may please enlighten us. Alternatively, I will also seek the details of the address and contact number soon!
But I also believe that there should be some very good outlets in Delhi/ NCR!
Or have plastics or the engineering plastics of today, taken out all the sheen from chrome plating, subsequently making the latter enterprises close shop and look for faster money in Delhi / NCR ?

Anjan I am aware of a chap in Bhoiguda area in Hyderabad who does plating, been using him. What I observe is that on fresh metal he does a good job. But when it comes to replating I am not too happy as its not as good as when fresh metal is plated.

I suggest that a for sale list should be put up along with a list of cars alongside so sellers and buyers can get a fast reference for their requirements and people with extra parts can sell them fast

Careful, these are Dilli replicas. No Lucas button on top, and those 2 screws to hold the bezel don't belong.
If you google Lucas 1142 you will find lots of past ebay auctions for this item. Nevertheless, anyone who needs it has not many options.
