Chrome truths

Published: 10:27AM Nov 17th, 2011

Dear Classic American,...As any Cadillac aficionado will note, my Fleetwood sports a full chrome wheel, specially designed for the car; love ’em or hate ’em!

While there are quite a number of electroplaters around, none that I have contacted appear able to re-chrome these. I would be pleased if any of your readers, or traders, can help.

Any ideas? We’ve heard good things about Derby Plating which can be found at 148 Abbey Street, Derby DE22 3SS, Tel: 01332 382 408. The company has a website at and apparently prefers the phone to e-mails – now that’s refreshing.
