Suzuki GT750 chrome plating

Click the images below for full sized pictures most are around 1200 x 900

Suzuki GT750 head lightBought a NOS ( New Old Stock )head light shell and unfortunately the chrome wasn't up to much, so got it stripped. Polished myself and then got re-chromed at Calmac Metal Finishers in Gosport.
