Default Chrome Plating?

Anyone do this or have a REALLY GOOD shop that does? This Front Runner from www.waag.com does not come in anything bright. I do not want PC. I want it "triple chrome plated" so I do not have to worry about rust with regular upkeep, as I want it to match my chrome Westin nerf bars and polished SS exhaust. Thanks in advance.

Anyone that could do a quality job on that would be expensive. Expecially if you want triple, chrome plating. I would bet you could double or triple the price of the guard just to have it done.

I can tell you that WAAG has an excellent factory warranty on all their products. Westin and WAAG both have the same warranty on their products. WAAG just has a lot more applications in their product line to choose from. Westin doesn't make their products for as many vehicles as WAAG. I use both companies without any worries at my store.

I have a card at my shop for a guy about 80 miles from me that does it but I've never used him. If you want I'll get the info off it and forward it to you.

Thanks guys. I would appreciatte both numbers when you have time. I want to shop this around a bit and find out who can sell me best on their talents. I have to have it shipped to me, so I might at well have it shipped to a plater first. Waag said they expect to make this in Polished SS sometime in 2003, but that will likely cost a fortune as well, and harder to maintain. Other SS grill guards nearly double or triple in price when you go to SS, as do nerf bars. I think the well done chrome will be worth the cost; especially if someone will warranty it. I can get it in black for around $300.

Even if you "triple chrome plate" it is will still rust after a year or so. Wait for the stainless one---you'll be happier in the long run.

There is a place in Newark, NJ that I have used. It's either all bright metal finishing or polishing. They have a web site. I think there # is 973 648 8740.
