Does anyone have any suggestions for nickel plating in Brisbane ? Im needing to do some bars, stem, seat post and maybe chainring and cranks. What should I be expecting to pay ?

I rang them yesterday about chroming some bars and was told $100 to $200 as a ballpark.

Wow that's more than I had thought,
My steel cinelli stem was $66
But it was better than new,
But with the prices of steel gear these days it is still worth it.

l can highly recommend Tony at Pacific Plating at Eagle Farm. l have never had a problem with any of his work, he does a lot of high end resto work and the BMX guys have been using him for years. Also cheap chrome plating is a thing of the past with all the rules and regulations they have to comply with these days has put the price up.

You could try the plating mob in Toowoomba. I've never used them before but I'm sure they'd be a fair bit cheaper.
