I have to say that despite all the nasty potential consequences of chroming, a full chrome Paramount is still exquisite to behold, and I'd love to own one, potential hydrogen embrittlement and all. I'd suggest Hilary do a Design Classic spot on the full chrome Paramount, but perhaps Paramount can't generate in UK the mystique that has always surrounded it in America.

Jerry:

The 531 used in the early Paramounts was pretty thick-walled, so the concern about premature failure would be much less I think. And the chrome ones are gorgeous....
