    May be aman is asking for chrome plating(a process to apply a layer of nikle or some other matel on steel parts like mud guards etc.)

    Aman you may get help from bus body builders at bund road. they do chrome job to differend fenders, stands for buses.

    hi guys, I'm also looking for someone who can give a shiny chrome finish to some of my car parts. I got it done a few years ago through PIA (using influence) but they did a horrible job. The chrome came out very dark and its started to peel.

    If you guys know anyone in Karachi that would really help.

    To my limited knowledge, Chome can NOT be applied like paint. There are paints out there that do mimic the look of Chrome Plating but I doubt there availability in Pakistan.
    Chrome Plating is usually done on metal parts; it is done on plastic also but the results are not that satisfying.
    I think Litten(apologies for spelling) Road has Chrome Plating people. Do ask for Hard Chrome, if they can understand that. Hard Chrome is better in resisting scratches and enviornment. They should Electroplate your metal parts with Copper then Nickle and finally Chrome. The key to that brilliant shine is the polishing procedure which makes the surface smooth and is done after every plating process.
    Hope this helps you a little.

    Mr. Oman Rasheed

    Chrome is best when plated, it is quiet common, paint wont give the results, If you are from lahore go to Mcloed Road there are people who will do chrome plating to your satisfaction, Fuel tank, side covers wont be more than 1000 Rs.

    If you need a person go to Asim Ali Traders, 40 Mcloed Road, Lahore. Phone 0321-4947375 (Shahbaz Ahmad) you will find him in afternoon. He is a 125 lover and has prepared couple of 82 models for himslef (worth seeing and riding). He will modify your bike as you like.

    If you decide to get your bike done by him do post the pics here.

    In fact there are two different things about chrome, I came to know after I got some work done on my bike's fork tubes.

    Firstly, there is the chrome polishing and secondly there is the Pakka Chrome. Chrome polishing would be cheaper, but it's better to go for Pukka Chrome, it lasts longer..
    Dunno about the chrome spray as mentioned by foosa, never seen it before but I'll try it on the wheels now as they are getting rusted.

    brother chrome polishing is done where there is chrome plating, they just buff it to remove some rust or surface spots. Front Forks are given the best chrome plating by manufacturers, normally we dont get that quality of chrome at our local market and thats why mechanics prefer buff on front forks, instead of local low quality chrome.

    That cant be done on fuel tank since it doesnt have chrome plating on it.

    And plz dont try chrome spray. you will be just wasting your time and money on it. These spray paints dont give good results and come off very easily.find some place where you can get good quality chrome plating.

    electro-platting is a 3 step process copper, nickle and chrome to achieve an excellent and lasting shine. Unfortunately, the first two steps are often overlooked as they increase cost. Hard chrome or industrial chrome (often known as industrial chrome) is typically used for reducing friction and restoring fatigued metal but seldom used for cosmetic uplift.
