What Our Clients Have to Say...

You have a customer for life!

"You saved me big! After dealing with another local plater for 4 months of every excuse in the books I took my stuff back and sent it to you! 2 weeks later it was on its way back! And it is absolutely beautiful! Thanks for baling me out and doing a wonderful job! You have a customer for life!"

It is worth every penny.

"I had Terry chrome my front and back bumpers for my 1960 Buick. They were not in the best shape when I gave them to him and I told him I wanted them perfect. While he said no chroming job is perfect he would do the next best thing. I was nervous because I have had these chromed twice before over the years and they came back with a grainy look in the top of them and they were not straight at all. Foggy inside openings and other problems. Terry assured me I would be happy with them. Well I picked them up yesterday at the show and I almost cried. They were so perfect that I never imagined my bumpers could look this good! I can't say enough good things about Custom Plating Specialists. They did an awesome job and all my chrome needs in the future will be going to them. It is very hard to find a place that can do work like this. I could stare at those bumpers all day. I can't wait to get the car done and put them on. Thank you so much Terry for doing the great work you do. It is worth every penny. I will tell everyone I know about your work and professionalism."

The console looks like new! Beautiful!

"Terry, My Christmas present just arrived! Your assurances were right on. The console looks like new! Beautiful! Thanks to you and everyone who worked on the piece!!!!!!! I am so pleased with the results. I have had a couple of old rodders waiting to see how it turned out, as they have been told the same thing I was.

Still Lookin' New 10 Years Later

Impressed Customer

"You have really impressed my customer with rechroming his new headlamps."


Record Time & Better Than New

"I met Terry and Steve in Zephyrhills, FL 2 or 3 years ago and became buddies with them. See them every 6 months at the swap meet. This year I needed to re-chrome the windshield posts and door posts from my '59 Corvette. They took them home with them and re-chromed them for me. I got them back in record time and they look better than new. I am 110% happy with them and have sent more parts to be restored. This place is first class. Thanks for your great work."

Terry I have to say your company does outstanding work. I would like to know how you removed the dents in the bumper? I would recommend your company to anyone! Thanks again for a job well done!!!!!

Happy New Year

"Happy New Year to you as well, Terry. I'm so pleased with your work that I have been spreading the word to several people doing restorations. One, of course, is Bob Porecca, but I believe that his work, which was installed by Kanter Restorations has caused the Kanter company to try your services as well.
There's nothing better than repeat and referral business. Keep up the fine work."

The Rambler parts turned out very nice, thank you.

As previously discussed, I sent you three GMC emblems today. They are in extremely nice shape and you should be able to chrome them without any major problems. Unfortunately I forgot to include them with the Rambler parts, or they would be done by now. However, I appreciate your offer to

Thank you, John Pazik


Hi, I stopped in today to pick up my radiator shell and dash for my 1928 Ford. Got it home looked it over and have to tell you I was super pleased with the job.

Terry, thanks for the chrome job on the luggage rack. Sending you a picture of my 70 Vette. You did do the grill chroming for it also, looks great.


GMC Emblems

Hey Terry - I meant to contact you and tell you how happy I am with the GMC emblems - your shop did a great job! I have quite a lot of other work for you to do as money comes and goes....

Coil Covers

I did receive the sample coil covers that you plated and sent me. I have to say that they look absolutely beautiful, better than I had expected. I have the full quantity of parts formed but still need to make a fixture and spot weld them. I will keep in touch with the progress and get them out to you as soon as I can.
Thank you again and they look great.

Greg Spaulding

Very Satisfied

Got my parts & am thrilled. The quality of your work was excellent, and so was your attention to packaging detail. The way each part was wrapped & protected exceeded my expectations, and I am finicky. Very satisfied and appreciative.
