    Hey guys I am looking to get my rally wheels rechromed, i am coming up dry to find a shop in Winnipeg to get them chromed. Where are you guys sending your parts to to get chromed these days, seems like alot of shops have closed up that i used years ago? thanks Gordon

    Pretty hard to find folks to rechrome wheels anymore. You can pretty much buy new ones cheaper. Bumpers are a whole different story since you can't buy those new.

    Those aftermarket wheels rust faster than you can say rust when they are put on any car other than a show car or trailer queen......
    The chrome is soooo thin on the china hoops that the weld the on to.....

    I have finally put together a set of NOS GM wheels but it has taken me several years....
    Good luck...

    I hear the 70 bumpers have been repoed....

    Yeah, I got lucky. Found a nice original set of wheels with no rust in a skylark graveyard after giving up trying to get mine rechromed.

    Yeah, well, what to do with rechroming a set of WG's???

    You can still find places to get rechroming done, but it is getting pricey, especially for bigger stuff. New Rally wheels run about $230 each (at Summit), which is less than what many/most rechrome shops will charge you. Can't attest to their quality though. Presentation1.jpg

    I know repos are economical, I bought a set of Wheel Vintiques and center caps from summit this spring, they are very nice wheels. I want to restore original WG wheels from my 70 gsx, so just cut apart a sacrificial wheel from a 77 to see if I can do them. So apparently no shop in Manitoba does wheel chroming so have to expand my search

    Yeah, I understand... a 70 GSX is worth the investment. Hopefully you can find someone fairly close.
