hey poppa who do you have plate your parts , are they resonable,is it a good turn around time .. i hate building a kit and the bumpers and such have the flash under the chrome , i use alclad but it's just not the same.. it's prob easier to get a bunch of parts ready and send them out ha ...let me know if you can.. p.s. i sent pics of the paints to your work...
I have a guy in Canada do my stuff, but his turnaround kinda sucks. I don't refer people to him anymore because then he gets overloaded.
Mad's been looking into starting up plating but dont know if he can count on anyone from here for bussiness or not from stuff that's happened in the past.
that is pretty much the only thing holding him back on it since the setup is going to cost a little over 1k with all the stuff to do it.
if he does do it he's probably going to be doing gold as well too.
and his prices will be cheaper and ALOT faster than where most of you guys have been going.
he said one of you guys was charged $8 to chrome 2 bumpers and it took like 3-4 weeks or more.
any feedback on this will be helpful.
I'm happy with my plater, we're friends and his work is second to none, puts Chrometech to shame. The cheapest I ever got was $40 for 2 12"x 12" racks. The chrome eventually yellowed and wasn't very good, plus some of my parts were broken. JC's Finique Chrome had good work, but his turnaround got worse and worse and he eventually just quit. My plater takes a long time because he does it all himself, from racking them, laquering them, and chroming them. His machine does 6x9 racks and cost $140,000 Canadian, used. Chrometech doesn't even do the chroming, he racks them up and sends them somewhere. These guys aren't getting rich off it either, mine is a part time nurse, and Chrome Tech sells old kits for big money. If Mad thinks he has the time and room to do quality work, go for it. Another player won't hurt, but I just want to make sure he knows what he's getting into
