At Adelaide’s Extreme Horsepower showcase event at Wayville October 2006, A Class Metal Finishers announced that they are now able to provide a service to chrome plate alloy car wheels.
This is a real plus for restorers who are otherwise faced with the high cost of purchase for a new set of wheels. Now drivers will be able to own a set of gleaming chrome rims for a fraction of the cost. Such a service has not been readily available to car enthusiasts previously.
No longer will there be a need to do high maintenance to keep polished alloys looking reasonable.
The added benefit of this service is that those who do happen to purchase new chrome alloys now also have somewhere to go to have their wheels restored if, for example they suffer scrapes or scratches (such as gutter scrapes).
