The chrome shop I have been using has been doing a very good job. I can recommend them to others based on their prices and quality of work. The shop is Art's Brass, located in Seattle.
That being said, we struggled to get the little dash plate done with an appearance as originally appeared on the 356 B and C cars. They issue is the strip that runs East/West on the plate that is NOT supposed to be bright shinny chrome. It is chromed but the finish is to be a matt finish. This is difficult to do because the rest of the plate is like all the other chrome- bright, smooth, and highly reflective.
It took 4 attempts, but they kept working with me, and it is finally right!
It arrived here by UPS last night and I just had to share a photo.
