I was looking into re-chroming a while back and it seems like it waaay too expensive for most people to bother.

 

However, one thing that did pop up is a paint product called Spaz Stix (unfortunate name) which is used by model makers for chroming plastic bits.

 

It's not all that expensive. Can be bought from model shops in Aus or online.

 

I can't comment on its effectiveness, but try Google with some intelligent key words and you'll find the answers and surface prep tips.

 

-10 for lack of photos

On Facey there's a bloke called David repairer Fernyhough (I think that's how it's spelled), speak to him.

 

For rubbers you make your own, get your clips replated along with your headlight buckets and  reflectors. It's expensive to do but you end up with reconditioned headlights.

 

Oh yeah, polish your glass while it's out.

 

This is all expensive and time consuming but you get the satisfaction of a job well done.
