What do you mean chrome it? I'm almost sure that there isn't a chromer that has a tank big enough to chrome a whole frame. Your not refering to the chrome paint from Ansa are you?

I was told by someone that most chromers can plate an entire frame. Anyway I'm probably just gonna go with powder coating.

definatly powdercoat it....it is posible to chrome a frame but u have to cut it in half and chrome it in 2 pieces then put it back together which means u got a weak frame so if u got hydros you goto keep your tires on the ground and its going to cost a hell of alot

yep like bing linc said, to do a frame correctly so that the chrome looks good will cost you a lot. to mold a frame and make it chrome ready, will cost you about $5000(not including chrome), depending who does it. can do it yourself, but youll probably be able to tell you did it. not like a truck frame, which is an easier thing to do. powder coat it and forget it
