Dave, That sounds good, I have a good friend who works at the Ford dealer in town, he is going to help me remove the bumper parts, hopefully I can get with him soon. Will keep you posted. We can always figure out a time to take them in, I live in Bay City so I am about 1 hour and 50 minutes away from Highland Park. Tom

This is great news about the Highland Park plater. My folks live in Farmington Hills which is very close to there. Next time I visit I just may have to throw some bumpers and other chrome into the van and pay them a visit.

Anders, you are a member here, find out what shipping costs are to Detroit. Maybe we can include your chrome, for a better total price. I wouldn't normally do this, except you are so far away and a fellow member. It is difficult to restore classic cars, here. My heart goes out to restorers living abroad. Micro is about six easy miles from my house, and I don't think anyone is in a huge rush. Winter is two months away.

I have done this in the past:
Go with one or a few items, but get a quote for the whole bang. You can pick up whatever, but the discount comes when they receive all of the quoted parts.

Micro deals in cash (most platers do), but they give written receipts and written quotes. I will talk with them tomorrow. If they don't budge on price, I have another plating company in mind, still in the Detroit area. - Dave

Thanks alot for the opportunity, and you willingness to help me.
But I am not at the moment planning to take the bumpers apart, as I like to spend this winter with plenty of other things in my car, as I finally have my Garage up & running.

Shipping these things to US and back will also cost, and upon everything else, Tax and customs from US is a sad story on its own, so Im not sure it makes much sence in the end.
But again, I might contact you next winter if I need recomendations for a place that can do a perfect job for decent amount of dollars.
Again, Big thanks for your support!!!

Anders,

I never lived in Farmington Hills myself. My folks moved there after I was out of the house. A long way to say I don't know Josh Cyrul.

Josh is quite popular in the Radio Control Car industry. He makes and races 1/12th scale. Actually, his car bodys are top notch, and racers use them all over the USA at 'Nationals' races. His business is still in Farmington Hills, but I believe he lives in Canton, Michigan.
