Here at North Star, if you need it plated, we can probably plate it. We offer chrome plating for bumpers, trim pieces, and just about any other steel, brass, or zinc/potmetal part you might need. Recently we chrome plated some barbed wire for a customer who was in the business of barbed wire (see photo below). He wanted to use it to decorate his motorcycle, and we loved the idea. So get creative.

Our plating process involves straightening and repairing your original bumper, when needed, stripping all old finish off of it, and finally adding a fresh, beautiful, nickel and chrome finish.

From hot rods to muscle cars, classic trucks to modern semis, we have the automotive world covered. As long as your bumper or other part is made of steel, brass, or zinc, we can plate it. *Unfortunately, we're not able to plate stainless steel at this time.

But we don't just work on car parts. Up here in our Brainerd, Minnesota facility, we're surrounded by two things: snow and lakes. So our local customers often come to us with plating needs for their classic snowmobiles and boats, the latter of which often feature brass parts. We also regularly plate motorcycle parts, on both new and classic bikes, from Harleys to Hondas, from fenders to handlebars.

We handle appraisal, inspection, repair, preparation, plating, post-plating inspection, packaging, and shipping, all in-house. Just send us your bumpers and other parts, and we'll handle the rest.

For nearly sixty years, we've been one of the top chrome plating providers in the country. We've handled orders from all over the world, including parts coming in from as far away as France and Sweden.

If you need chrome parts restored, or non-chrome parts plated, you can count on us. North Star Plating is your home for chrome.
