will those plate plastic?
i believe they do have the nickel coating stuff if i remember correctly.

look at dropping a good $500 or more to get started with though.[/b][/quote]
are those $28(Plug n Plate) any good or can they not chrome plastic?

Yeah they're good but you have to buy a spray called Silvaspray to make the plastic conductive because plastic isn't conductive like metals. Its a little costly but you don't have to see a plater no more and end up with those huge bills. If you wanna chrome plate you just need to spray the conductive paint and then plate. If you want to gold plate you must spray the conductive paint then nickel and copper plate and then gold plate. Hope it helps

I don't know about that paint you would have to ask them, but they say " Apply a heavy layer of copper plate, and LIGHTLY buff it to a high shine. Then you can plate it with Copy Chrome™, or Nickel plate. We would NOT recommend plating with Chrome, as the currents required are too high, and may encourage dis-bonding of the paint film. "
