Chrome Accessories for Classic Cars

The chrome plating process is a method of applying a thin layer of chromium onto a substrate (metal or alloy) through an electroplating procedure.

Chrome accessories give vehicles the sharp look. Exterior chrome parts begin with chrome door handles as well as a chrome front grille if available for the vehicle model. Many manufacturers added chrome trim covers for their windshields and chrome mats on the interior as well as chrome air horns. During restoration, repairs and repainting, it may also be easier to replace the original manufacturer’s chrome name badge than to mask it.

Chrome accessories are a hallmark of classic cars. Envisage chrome bullet-style side mirrors and chrome-encased fog lights. Many cars from the 1960s have chrome fuel caps. Radio aerials were chrome-plated as were door handles, key openings, rock guards, and many other standard parts.

Chrome bumpers and front chrome grills are so obvious that they could nearly be overlooked.
