Where can you get ABS plastic chromed?

I don't think anybody has asked this question before, so hoping to help others who thought about this. But where in the lower mainland can you get something on your car that's made of hard plastic chromed? Alot of highend cars, have like fog light bezels chromed, or front grills chrome, that is made of plastic pieces etc. Some people like having interior parts done in chrome. Or if it can't be done on an aftermarket level (just oem or dealer-only level), is there any wrap shops, that will wrap stuff in chrome vinyl wrap by any chance?

Just wanted to state, that alot of people have classic cars in the lower mainland and trying to restore it, and some of their dash pieces, the chrome is falling part and aging and wanting to know where they can get those pieces restored. No need to make fun of chrome, like its a disease.

hydrachroming maybe...

example (from alberta):

or DIY spray:

keep in mind this is no good for high wear items, like grab bars, etc.. and is best for stuff like trim pieces. i've used the spray before (different brand) to help a friend restore the trim parts on his old honda CBX and it turned out well.

You may as well go do some donuts in a strawberry patch and slalom through a litter of kittens." Dan Frio, Automotive Editor, Edmunds
