    Anyone recommend someone to re chrome a standard 70's ford bumper, not an American style or anything in Ireland?

    Approx pice?

    I presume sending one to the uk works out expensive ?

    From what I have read over the years, most chroming work gets sent to the UK (only one Irish company afaik).
    In the rear of 'Irish Vintage Scene' magazine there is usually an ad for 'Castle Chrome' (UK company). Any chroming work isnt cheap.

    What type of Ford is it?
    Parts for classic Fords are generally easy to come by - perhaps a replacement is your best option.
