I don't have anything more than a name of a magazine and a Hobby shop, but I have seen articles and advertisements in scale model car magazines, most notably "Scale Auto Enthusiast," about companies that will chrome plate, or re-chrome plate, styrene (and other) plastic model parts. Also, when I lived in Sonoma County, CA, a few short months ago, the owner of "Klaus' Little Shop Of Hobbies," would pool together with other model builders and send in parts to be chrome plated as a group. I believe the results were quite nice. "Klaus" can be contacted through directory assistance for Rohnert Park, California. He's a great guy, and if you do get in touch tell him I said Hi. As far as I know, The company he deals with is one that advertises in the previously mentioned magazine.
