Nobody thought it possible to resurrect this Austin A 30 grill. It looked like it was ready to be buried. It was completely rusted through.
When I say rusted I mean rusted. The holes in the previously chromed grill were up to 5mm or more in diameter and some of the metal was paper thin.
There was no chrome to be seen on the grill and I assume some bloody electroplater left it in the strip too long and stripped the hell out of it.
As chrome-plated Austin A 30 grills are not easily available, the customer didn't have much of a choice and availed himself of Chrometech's service.
Chrometech re-structured and fortified the grill with resin and fiberglass, filled the holes with putty, high-filled it, rubbed it back and proceeded
with the activating process prior to chrome-plating the now mostly non conductive grill. The end result was unbelievable.The chrome-plated
Austin A 30 was featured in a car magazine and was brought back to life. If you want to see a picture, contact Chrometech on 02 98999122

This RX7 has undergone a five year conversion into a brilliant piece of art. "Jealous Ahura" the name of the car was flown from Malaysia (Apparently the car belongs to a crown prince of Indonesia)
to participate at the Motor ex held in Sydney on July 11th and 12th. It was the first time that an an International car took part in the exhibition. The car has 10.000 Swarovski crystals encrusted, even in wheels you can find crystals. The car
is worth about $ 250.000. All the interior plastic car parts were chrome-plated by Chrometech.
At the show you could find hot rods, street machines,all American car, motorbikes. An auction was held on Sunday. We at Chrometech also participated and had a great response. A lot of people were impressed with the electroplated fiberglass for the hot rods. This opens a market and can add value from just the fiberglass parts to a shinning pride. A lot of cars were at the exhibition that had the parts chrome-plated by Chrometech. If it's good enough for the Prince to use the services of Chrometech, we must talk quality electroplating
