Classic Components/South Bay Chrome are the leaders in the restoration of classic car bumpers and parts as well as other vintage vehicles, bikes and motorcycles. In order to achieve the highest quality chrome job possible, South Bay Chrome’s multi-layer process includes the following when working on a restoration-type project:
- If necessary and agreed upon by the customer, parts are welded, repaired and straightened and filled by hand.
- Parts are then machined and/or hand polished depending on the type and condition of the part.
- Parts are cleaned, activated and electroplated with a special proprietary nickel.
- Parts are electroplated with copper.
- Parts are copper buffed and if necessary, copper plated again to level out imperfections in the material or casting.
- Parts are once again cleaned, activated and bright nickel plated.
- Parts are electroplated in chromium (chrome).
Standard strip, polish and plating (non-restoration) service is available at a reduced cost for parts that do not require repair or full restoration. Please be sure to specify what service you require and mark all of your parts for imperfections or damage if you expect it to be restored. Please see our Automotive page for photos of completed restoration projects. Compare our bumper prices to other custom chrome shops and you will not be disappointed!
