Anyone know a shop in NE Florida that does re-chrome of mc parts? I’m in Jacksonville area.
Space Coast Plating They are in the Daytona area. They are very good. I've spent a lot of my customers money there over the years. I too am in the Jacksonville area. Good chrome plating ain't cheap and cheap chrome plating ain't good. Keep us posted.

Sounds like you are running a shop ? Don’t know a lot of places around here that work on old bikes - except for Garrison Moto in Jax beach

That’s cool - like the vintage cars but takes to much space and money :). Wish I could paint other than from a can - haha. I’m retired from the merchant marine and spend most of my free time working on old motorcycles ( mostly the mechanic part of it). Got an ice set up but I’m at the beaches so space is limited around here.
Who do you send stuff for blasting at ? I found that all want to powder coat your frame if you send them their way - I know it works and look good but I don’t like it - especially not on frames.

Try Adkins Sandblasting. They're on the northside of the Dames Point Bridge. He's done a bit of work for me. The only thing is, he uses a heavy grit sand , meaning you're going to have to sand and prime it a couple of times to smooth it out. I'll be happy to guide you through that process.
