Chrome plating

Recommendations please- the original fittings on the Broom are all Simpson Lawrence and deserve to be well restored.
Thanks

I don't know where you live but I have used London & Brighton Plating a few times always with good results. See: here for details
Mercs are like women, no 2 are exactly alike. That's what testing is about. In general it is safer to test motors and props than women!

These Simpson Lawrence ones were done by L&BP for me - what I liked was the depth of the chrome but the seams were still defined. I threw the Attwood monkey metal originals away.... Recently had some rope chocks done by them and the quality was consistent.

London and Brighton too busy with big contracts to do little jobs- sadly
Any others ?
