Steve Maas, a listmember, has used this process and posted photos of the results. Looked pretty good in my opinion. Do an archive search for Steve Maas and you will probably come up with something. Maybe even links to the bicycles he has restored.

Has anyone used Caswell's "plug n'plate copy chrome" kit:
and if so what were your experiences? how good (from the POV of durability and looks) is it for fixing old chrome on relatively small parts (like an steel stem or a chainring), and can it be used to newly plate small stuff like bolts etc.?
