If I want something re-chromed, I'd send it to Chrome-Tech USA. Thinking of having a few of my TF parts sent there.
They specialize in chrome-plating plastic model car parts. They can also do gold-plating for a few bucks more.
I use Taimaya...though it is great for parts to look like steel it is far and away from looking chrome.
they will do a great job for you. I have had s lot of parts sent to then for chroming, and haven't had a bad product confer back yet. If uuuu want real chrome, they are the way to go.
what type of cost is it?? say like the tailfins of a red alert?? also how small of a part can they chrome???
site says about 3 to 6 bucks. Not bad. If you need them to strip it then 3 more dollars.
The smallest piece I had they m do was the visor halves on rotf leader prime. So about the same size as the spoiler halves on red alert. tell you the truth though I can't see size being a huge issue honestly.
Im thinking of having Tigertracks gun and missile gold-plated which might go well with his yellow.
If anything and they don't do colored chrome, have them chrome the parts anyway, and spray them with a clear yellow, that will get you close to the color you want, . However I'm pretty sure they do colors a well.

i dont know if ya seen em but spazstix do some awesome chrome paint,miror chrome its called
i use both alclad and mirror chrome and in my opinion mirror chrome looks better
the only down side is it doesnt like being clearcoated but i tend to chrome then gloss then do an extra chrome layer,sounds wierd but always works for me.
