Greg would not do it again! He had chrome start to peel.
I have a BMW car with aluminum wheels, and there was another one included in the trunk that had been chromed, but it was also starting to peel in small spots.
A friend at work was going to have his car wheels chromed, but found that there are few places that can chrome aluminum and guarantee it to not pit or peel. Aluminum is not easily chromed without longevity problems.
No reason for you not to try though if you have a company who does aluminum chroming a LOT, and will guarantee the work. Just be forewarned that few places can do this well, even if they think they can.
I don't want to achieve immortality through my work...I want to achieve it through not dying.
