You can try Vinci Chrome in Malaga ask for Chris he is in the Torana Club over here or K&D Chrome in Maddington they will both do a good job but stay away from that mob in Bentley I have seen some not so good work from them.
If you need any polishing done give Matt at Refleks Metal Polishing a call
You just have to let whoever you get to do it know that you are after a first class job and if your not happy then dont pay for it untill you are.

KD would be my choice for chrome......... not that I like it myself or would ever have any done. But they are good
Ask for Kerry if he is still running the show (he should be)
For Cad plating (gold,silver,black) I use Aeroplate in Welshpool
Also does some coloured anodising of ally.

Say so and tell them to do it again
Your the paying customer you expect quality product
However if the base metal is crap,rust,dimpled you will get a crap job back

TOP BONNET CATCH.
BOTTOM BONNET CATCH.
BOTH BONNET HINGES/SPRINGS.
WIPER MOTOR SHROUD.
WIPER MOTOR PLATE.
I dunno maybe I am just a cheap bastard?,does this sound expensive to you guys?
I suspect the wife will cut my nuts off when/if she finds out how much this shit cost(sigh). I took the wiper motor apart again to check out the magnet removal and you just have to push back the spring steel clips on the magnets and they slide out(hooray!)..............

But if the quality is there and thats what you want
Go for it
And never show the Mrs the bill for car parts
Get yourself a credit car thats just for the car..... then its an easy thing to manage and keep track of

I go to pick up my parts and they say"oh that'll be $370.00 please" I said "you what!!!!?" I told them the other bloke said it would be $290.00 and they said no I must be mistaken!! ARHHHH(you #unts).I didnt get a written quote,stupidest thing I have ever done(well almost) and they said what do you want to do?,I then looked at the parts and the bottom bonnet catch had a bit that was rough and not chromed correctly!!!!. I showed the guy and got them to re-do it and then had to pay that rediculous price and pick up the re-done catch the next day.
When I put the top bonnet catch on I see a small bit where you can see copper ,not chrome but I could be arsed going back to those mongrels. Hell I have the reciept for this mess and they charge=
$15.00-$45.00 to polish each item!.
$10.00 to remove paint from each item.
$5.00-$10.00 to remove zinc each item.
$15.00 -$40.00 to Chrome each item!

It takes 3 weeks to do a job they can redo in 1 day !!!
Hence why I dislike chrome and only go with alloy and cad plate
