    yes its possible. Lots of places do it. You may even have one local to you. Just do a google search for 'plastic chroming' and it will pick up a few companies.

    thats right, they are rebranding the ripspeed stores as 'ripspeed X' and offer a dipping service. Not just plastic but anything really as Tommy said. When i went to enquire they had a cosworth head finished in a marble effect, as well as mirrors in carbon and chrome. Lots of options and an engine cover will cost you about £60.

    As far as i know though, the only store to offer it is the gateshead store, handy for me, but not so for others.
