Re: Chrome plating in Colorado

I used Northwest Chrome in New Plymouth, Idaho to replate both my bumpers. They did exactly what they said they would do with no exceptions. I would use them again.

Re: dull paint

I use a random orbital buffer and Meguiars polishing compounds to remove discolorations and swirls. Very satisfied with results. Clay bar won't work for what you are asking.
