Tommy had found a company interested....go PM him. Our trim for our cars from the aluminum guy can be done in chrome...all of it (though it'll be extra). The shift plate piece can be separately bought too, in chrome. But definitely go talk to Tommy...it's always good to have competition. Lets everyone have choices for what they want...not just one selection :D

here is the two stores willing to do chrome for our ship plate.

First company is: "The pictures worked out fine. The cost to plate that part is 35.00 US dollars Plus the return S/H of 10.00 for that one part. If you have other parts the S/H may change slightly.
Hope this helps.

Bargain with them dude...say you've got a lot that'll do it and you want a lower price...pit them against each other. And wait...they're going to give us totally new shift plates or chrome the ones we already have?

guys i also find this place in usa, but he won't low down the price and cheaper the the 70 dollars one, but still kinda expensive. Here what he email me "plate as is..... plastic $65 plus shipping 949-254-4455". I really don't want to deal with the company out of our country. It worry me. I know I save a lot of money doing that, but it kinda scary. the other company charge me 35 dollars but the company is from British Columbia, Canada. Help me out please? thanks..

ok i just finished talk to the guy from canada on the phone. He sound very nice and everything. He say he won't accept any payment until i ship the shift plate to him. He told me because the only thing he see in the picture and he just estimate that price. He say the price won't change much. He warranty his work for the life of the plate. Unless you drop some sharp object and scratch the chrome then that the diffrent story. Also he will low down in the price if there more order on this. He sayed 10 percent will be lower down. It will take 2 weeks to be done. He say his employee doing the chrome by hand so it will take longer because doing by hand make the quality much better then machine. What you guys think about this? Cheaper then the three stores i found.
