yeah, judging my what I have found for prices on rechroming I would guess $125.00 to $150.00 buy once, cry once, hopefully with proper maintenance and waxing it, I can get 20-30 years out of it.we'll see.
there is one on ebay right now, the nicest I have seen, only a couple of blistered areas on it.
I'm not sure I really know what I'm talking about but could you do this by "electo-plating" or is that the same thing? Seems it may be an alternative? I think I will do some research and see what pops up.

Hey, send it off to Rick at American Restoration! With all the rechroming they (and others) do I can't imagine it's as costly as someone always wants to charge, maybe it's just knowing the right person. I'd love to see them restore an old trailer on their show.

Has anyone given any thought to nickel plating? I know it will not be as shiny as chrome, but it still looks really nice. The thing with nickel plating is you can do it yourself at home, with all the stuff you need costing under 50.00.
