Hi Gerry,

I have been using ACF Howells and have been very pleased with the results. They recently did the rear bumper for me and a custom centre section. Pics here (last two pages) viewtopic.php?f=5&t=3359&start=220

Gerry, if you have just started stripping down your car, you should consider waiting to send the bumpers off for chroming. During bodywork, you may realize that there is work to be done in the areas of the body and the bumper area may change. I did the bodywork, fitted and trimmed the bumpers to fit for optimum gaps, and then sent them off for plating.

+2 for ACF Howells

I've just had my rear quarter bumpers re-chromed by them and they look stunning. Very pleasant to deal with into the bargain.

Cheers

Marque Restore did mine, very good job. Long waiting list though - but you can reserve a place in the queue for a small fee refundable from the final bill.

Derby Plating . Very expensive but probably one of the best in the world.

+1 for Marque Restore.
I didn’t have an issue with waiting, less than 2 weeks I think. Not sure how current situation might be affecting things, better or worse.

It was about 3 years ago I went to Marque Restore. Sounds like things have quietened down.
