I had some of those done a few years ago and it ran about $100 each to re-chrome.  I live near Fort Wayne,IN and this was the place I used.  They do very good work and I've used them for several projects but with any un-environment friendly business you going to PAY$$$. reckonplating.com

Anyone familiar with Chrome Wizard in Mt. Juliet, TN. He was at the Turkey Rod Run and looked at these Gator caps.

Paint is off to show some rusty areas and a scratch under the "A".
O.D. on the large caps are approx. 9" I.D. approx. 7 7/8".
O.D. on the small caps are approx. 8" I.D. approx. 6 13/16".
First photo is wheel using the small cap. I have yet to see a wheel for the large caps.
Large caps are available. Small I need to hold on to in case I need them for the Gator I'm selling.

Yeah, they may not work on my wheels. What diameter is the inside flange?

I have my current hubcaps secured with a small dab of silicone.

I’ve rechromed stuff on my last Mercury Mark55 and it was very pricey for sure and it can take a while. I had it done by Advance Plating in Nashville, TN and they did a superb.

Yep. You can’t dump them out back anymore. I’ve lost those caps before on road trips. I no longer travel with them on the wheel.

I think chroming is stupid expensive everywhere.  Probably due to all  those nasty chemicals you need to keep track of.

Jpalin I will keep you in mind. I have a Gator trailer for sale that may need them but I have more hubcaps. Are you sure you need the small ones?
Anyone have a reasonable priced good chrome shop? Rechrome price in FL is pricey.

Look what I found at the Turkey Rod Run in Daytona. These are the small ones. They are painted over but are the straightest I've seen. And very little rust on the backside. I will strip the paint and see why they painted them.




Let know if you want to sell them. They sure would look nice on my trailer all re-chromed and such.
