If the engraver goes slow and takes his time with it, he may not mess the chrome up too bad, and itll look ok, but you normally have to rechrome it.

Exactly. I've seen some people get like an acid etching done on chrome parts and it gives it a frosted look which is cool if you like it but you won't get that deep engraving from it.

For proper engraving you have to strip the chrome off (or start with an unplated part to begin with), then engrave, then re plate. Otherwise it won't look as good and you won't get as many points.
