    Local sources for parts restoration

    Wanted to devote a thread for local sources for parts and restorations. A few areas that would be helpful are:

    general plating (for fasteners)
    anodizing
    chroming
    electrical (gauge restorations, rebuilt alternators/startors, electrical wire/connectors)
    media blasting
    paint
    chemical dipping

    others?

    We live in/near the Motor City. These resources must be abundant, and yet, it seems I'm always shipping parts out of the midwest.

    Plymouth Plating in Plymouth, MI does a fantastic job on hardware plating at a reasonable rate.

    Theres an anodizing place in Taylor, MI that does anodize trim restoration. I haven't used them but the chrome plater I use sends their anodized stuff to them. Last job I did I used Charlotte Anodizing in Charlotte, MI but I had to do the prep work.

    Bob's Speedometer can do the gages over there, but it's expensive and takes a long time. Not sure about other electrics as I use a place in Charlotte, MI that is close to me. I source my wiring stuff from YNZ wiring out west.

    I used Custom Chrome out of Grafton, OH
    There is also an inexpensive route in Jackson, MI called Westlund Manufacturing. Not high end show chrome but reasonable driver chrome.
