Where can you get metal parts such as chrome wheels re-chromed?

You can probably get them done locally. Check the yellow pages. Prepare for sticker shock!

Brandon,

You will need to call a shop local to your area. When you say "front and rer chrome" do you mean bumpers? The last I checked it was going to cast around $250 a bumper if I remember correctly here in Louisiana.

It will be cheaper to buy new, plus someone will more than likely buy your old to help pay for replacements.
Good chrome plating is expensive!

Gary, was it you who was quoted $300 for a pair of hood hinges?

Thanks guys. I was hoping to catch a break by having my wheels re-chromed but it looks like I'm going to have to replace them eventually.

Yeah Steve, I was quoted 275.00 do chrome both hinges and both springs, instead I had them just nickle plate them for 20.00ea. They are not shiney but have a clean metal silver appearence. To have the alum. Cobra rocker covers and oval aircleaner done in show quality chrome was 850.00 less the cost of the items---ouch!---but nice

Look for the Nov. issue of Mustangs & Fords, from what I have heard, my yellow Mach should be featured in that issue
