Shifter Handle Restoration

I just scored a rusty 4spd shifter handle pulled from a 64 Comet. It seems to be the right handle (compared it to a Mustang handle and its longer). Does anyone know what I need to do to get it rechromed? Is there a way to take it apart and get the reverse cable mechanism out for the rechrome process? Thanks in advance.

Joe, someone does this.

Check the Mustang mags (MMFF probably the best source)

Good luck1

Joe, I don't know if you've priced re-chroming recently, but the cost is appalling. You may be further ahead of the game by finding one in already good, workable condition that just needs a bit of polish. Check out E-bay.
