Chrome Dip?

My dad is looking to have the wheels off his VTX1300 dipped in chrome to match the rest of the bike. He started polishing the fins on his motor and decided it would take too long to polish the wheels.

What is he looking at paying, and any recommendations on where?

Thanks MH.
-Bill

Hmm...he got a quote over the phone for about the same amount from the first place in the yellow pages.

He would completely disassemble wheels, bearings and all himself.

I have this stuff i picked up at Mancuso that works really well. It's a super light powder you add water to just a little bit that you need and it turns into a paste. Takes off stuff that gets burned on my pipes. Feels like packaged air and costs about $15 but works really good. Forgot the name of it but its in a white plastic tub that looks like a can of dip and has blue writing on the top.
