I'm near Palm Springs and have been talking with a couple of guys near San Diego about the same thing but with an idea of taking a lot of work (I mean a lot) across the border. A big order might save even more. Otherwise I go to Orange County. e-mail me if you're interested.
Check out Max at Master Plating, 2109 Newton, under the Coronado Bridge, 619-232-3092. He does show chrome from all over the country. He did the bumpers on my daily driver about three years ago and they look great. He's a little pricey, but worth it...........lifetime warrantee to boot.
I am trying Pacific Plating in the I-5/I-8 area. They are doing 4 of my vent window frames. Some are better than others but they say the will all come out OK. They seem knowledgable and cooperative. Their plating plant is actually in Mexico. Should get the frames back arount the first of the month. Will let you know how they come out. If that works out, I have a lot more to send them. Am also looking into other sources in Mexico including Mexicalli. Will post any good info. Hopefully the frames will look good.
