CCI has Hot Rod Fever Already. Check out the custom chrome plating on this 1947 Ford Gasser!

I’m not sure if it is the fact that the first of the Goodguys Rods & Custom Association shows are coming up soon, or maybe it is because it feels like summer here in SoCal, but all of us have hot rods on our minds. The truth is it is always hot rod season around here, and it got me thinking about this 1947 Ford gasser-style truck we helped out on four years ago. Besides winning several awards at Goodguys in 2011, this truck was featured in Rodz Magazine.

This is great example of CCI’s custom chrome capabilities. While we get asked to restore chrome bumpers, gas caps, rims and all the usual parts a lot, CCI is also an expert when it comes to unusual and custom auto parts chrome plating and we can likely add chrome plating to just about any part you have in mind. CCI was able to chrome the custom keg shaped fuel tank on the front this truck, as well as the large beer keg fuel tank in the bed. Check out the pictures below.

– Jeff’s Fun Run 2014 at South Bay Chrome

On January 18, 2014 we participated in our first poker run.  The 6th Annual Jeff’s Fun Run stopped by the shop here at South Bay Chrome/CCI with over 200 cars.  The event was open to all makes and models which included hot rods, classic rides and custom trucks.  The variety of vehicles was impressive as these photos show.  The people came in waves of 20-30 cars at a time over a three-hour period.  It was like a traveling car show.  The participants, who were raising money for cancer research and having a great time, would stop by for about 10-30 minutes until they were ready to move on to the next stop on the map.  Good thing we had ample parking on both sides of the street because this place was packed!

Thank you Neal S. for the kind words and photo.  This is a fantastic restoration job on this 1968 Honda CB450.


My name is Neal S. from Saginaw, Michigan, and I just had you rechrome my side covers and headlight ring. Everything looks fantastic and I wanted to thank your staff for a great job. Enclosed is a pic of the 68 Honda CB450 the parts were for. I’ve got a few folks here who restore bikes and  we will definitely send our  future business your way.  Thanks again!!
