I'd say go look for a water transfer printing place to ship your parts out to. They can do titanium/neo chrome stuff along with the usual CF patterns.

check with a local chroming/plating shop. you wont need to send it to the states.

if you cant find anyone on the lower mainland, send it over to the island to a place called Victoria Plating. The can do neo chrome finishing.

Yeah, I'm not sure why people are so quick to send their stuff to the states, especially if there is a place locally (somewhat) that can do it. Victoria will be a hell of a lot faster, and cheaper (shipping). Support your local shops! Assuming their work is decent, which is something I'm sure Supper Dipper can vouch for.

On a side note, that water transfer printing stuff is awesome. Very cool, and more unique than neo chrome (at least for a valve cover). Would also like to know if there are any local places that do this.

Almost a full page of this thread, and we still don't know where to get this done locally.

Not that vague? It's not Lower Mainland local, but it's a lot closer than Cali

Victoria Plating

$550 for just my K20 valve cover
the proper neo chrome is a 8 step chroming process, it isn't spray paint

i was given vague details buddy.

"hey man, it looks likes im gonna get my cage and valve cover done in neo chrome! Cant believe Vic Plating can do that finish locally!"

So by that deduction, i merely posted up that this shop on the island can complete this finish supposedly. I have yet to hear back if the parts got done yet. If in fact, the parts get done, ill gladly post up pics but if it ends up being a farce, then that sucks, and parts will continue to have to go to the states.

It would be really cool to find a shop locally that could do this. With plating being such a nasty process due to the chemicals, there are more plating shops closing, than new ones to replace them. It's only a matter of time before we'll have no choice but to send it elsewhere.

And that's sad.
