Re-chromed Door Armrest Supports

Well its been a long time since I posted anything about my 66 Custom 500. And so like most members, I'm still rebuilding my 66 Custom 500. The most recent parts I had refinished are the door arm rest supports. I found a local company that does plastic re-chroming. I gave him 6 door arm rest supports and I received them back today. Below are some before and after pictures. Cost is about $40 each. I wasn't sure if they were cracked so I ave him a couple of extras to refinish. NOT perfect. A couple of nibs and very small imperfections, but they look 1000% better than the trashy ones I took off.

Wow those are nice.
Wish my 67 had something similar.

Re: Re-chromed Door Armrest Supports

I doubt there is anything that can be perfect with plastic chroming. Those look good in the picture, probably as good as new ever was. Hard to beat for the cost, too.
