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.
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....
