    I did a search but didn’t find anything.
    Anyone have experience with Smitty’s Chrome in Oshkosh, Nebraska?

    Not bad, a little on the high side. they don't copper plate under unless you ask/pay extra. I've had them do work in the past that was nice quality.

    I priced them and priced Quality Plating in Yuma Co most recently for my t bucket parts, and ended up taking my parts to Yuma. Happy with their price and turnaround

    They don't use copper unless you pay extra? That's like not using primer under your paint.

    @alchemy , maybe Im mistaken. Maybe it was Nickle they skip unless you pay. But to me it was odd to skip the steps of what I've always known chrome to be. Yeah. It was strange enough, that between it and the price difference I chose Yuma and they did a great job for me Still quite local to a CO/NE/KS kind of person

    nickel is the shiny bit, chrome is the "clear" copper stops corrosion, no copper no deal for me.
