    Chrome Plating - Christchurch

    Has anyone had any chrome plating work and also alum polishing of engine cases etc done by Christchurch Metal Finishers in Christchurch. If so, I would be keen for some feedback?

    Yes, however they didn't used to do the polishing prior to the chroming so you had to arrange that yourself, the place in Maldon street used to be good for the polishing

    Escort in Maldon St are still good for polishing. Never used ChCh Metal finishers as they have been predominantly production work biased.
    Since Superb closed down it's got hard to get good plating for small size batches in ChCh.
    Some are using Tony Pole - but I hear mixed results.

    i've used people spread across most of the country but not chch, same, mixed results, it's a cunt of job and is only as good as each staff member who does you stuff.

    For the sake of someone looking....I've been pointed at Plating Solutions in ChCh as the successors to Superb.
    Haven't used them yet but I've seen some of their work. Not bad at all.
