    Duane,now that I think about it one of the Shinn brothers took their bumper to Carlisle and gave it to Tri City Plating there and picked it up at another show. Talk face to face and save shipping.

    The bolts are regular steel with a stainless cap over the head. You can buy replacements at the chrome shop or ebay. Brackets should be matte black.

    I've been looking for a decent platter myself. Fred said Tri City is good buy I've never made the call. I know Advance in Nashville asked me $800. each to do mine. I'm looking for a business that I can talk face to face with. I don't want to do mail order.

    Duane in Tennessee.

    the brackets would be painted, and the bolts are cheap at most suppliers also look at stainless steel at lowes or homie depo

    I think Fred Carello uses Tri City plating in Tennessee. I hear they are reasonable. Correct me if I'm wrong Fred. I know the place here in Cincinnati is up to $450 now. It's getting ridiculous.

    So i have the front and rear bumpers for my econo but don't know what i should do about chroming them. Have called some places around me (cleveland ohio) and have got some prices. starting from $450-850 to chrome one bumper, damn. I want it done right, but that 850 sounds a bit high. Ideas? Also what about the bumper brackets? Are they usually painted with the chrome bumpers or chromed as well? and the bumper bolts chromed?
    Thanks
