    Been calling around Atlanta area and chrome bumper plating prices are all over the place. I need my back bumper done .. quotes are between $300 and $500.

    Any of you Georgia guys got your bumpers chromed lately and recommend a shop?

    Thanks ..

    Thanks. They have given me the cheapest quote and fastest turn around time so far. $300 and 3 weeks. Not sure if that is a good sign or bad.

    Wow......(3) weeks....that would be awesome. Where I had mine done....it took them longer than (3) weeks to even give me an estimate....and I dropped them off in person at the shop.

    I decided to use CHROME IT ATLANTA for my bumper. $349 and 6-8 week turn around ... but the owner was willing to meet near my work so I didn't have to drive 50 miles to drop it off. They advertise and distribute flyers at many car shows so hopefully they are top notch.

    I asked why my old Bumper looked so bad ... he said it had a good base of nickel on it .. but it seems like they did not put enough chrome on it so the chrome wore off. I had both my front and rear bumper chromed at Dallas Plating back when I restored my car ... Front bumper still looks perfect.

    So what does the rear bumper look like that you want to get it re-done?

    Please keep us updated.

    The bumper just turned a dull gray ... like an old nickel.

    I got a rear bumper off of Bumper Boyz truck at a swap meet 7-8 years ago and it still looks great.

    Tri City Plating is $300 and has a lifetime warranty. They did my car and I am very happy with their work.
