After nearly 5 years of serving the Datsun community, Vintage Chrome will be terminating the service by the end of this year. There comes a time in most every entrepreneurial venture when you reach a point in which you have a tough decision to make......"get big or get out". Unfortunately, achieving significant growth at this stage of the venture would simply require a commitment of resources that I am not prepared to make at this stage of my life. So, I have decided that "getting out" is the best course of action for me and my family. I know that there are members of the club that would still like to have some plastic parts chrome plated, so I am announcing a final production run and club member discount. The Promotion will work as follows: 1. Orders will be accepted from today's date, October 11, 2016, through October 31, 2016. 2. Pricing for many of the more common Z and other Datsun parts are listed below, but we also have the capability to chrome plate any rigid plastic piece, even if it was not originally plated by Datsun . If you need this customized service, please email [email protected] for a specific quote. 3. The customer must ensure that parts to be chromed are disassembled to the point where only the pieces to be chromed are provided to us. No other preparation is required by the customer. All stripping and prep work will be completed by us. 4. Payment Policy: Payment via PayPal is due at time of order. Domestic (US) shipping and handling charges will be $9.95 per package 5. INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS: Prices are the same as quoted here except non-US customers will be responsible for freight costs and applicable customs charges, if any. 6.Shipping Info: Your parts should be be shipped to the following address: M. Robbins - Vintage Chrome 7250 S. Durango Dr., Suite 130-164 Las Vegas, NV 89113 9. Please be sure to include with your packaged parts: Your name Return shipping address Email address Phone number Special instructions (even if previously communicated through PM or email). Examine your cores carefully before sending them to Vintage Chrome. Peeling or discolored chrome is OK, but parts must not be warped, have cracks, gouges or missing pieces in the substrate. We do not repair damaged plastic parts or re-paint parts after plating. Un-platable cores will be returned (if requested) or disposed of. Pricing for many common Z and other Datsun parts are listed below: Item Description 260/280z Tail Light Bezels (pair) $229.95 240/260/280Z Center Vents (each) $39.95 240/260/280z round a/c vents: (pair) $79.95 240/260/280Z Door Escutcheons (pair) $59.95 240Z Series I Hatch Grilles (pair) $59.95 260/280z hood vents (pair) $199.95 Plastic Wheel Center Caps (set of 4) $199.95 240/260/280Z Heater Control Panel (each) $129.95 240/260/280Z Door Pull Strap Finishers (pair) $49.95 240/260/280z emblems Email your needs for custom quote Please contact [email protected] for quotes on other parts or anything custom.

For what is rapidly becoming an annual tradition, Vintage Chrome is once again proud to offer our fourth quarter/year end forum promotion for your plastic plating needs. While we did include metal parts with our promotion from last year, this year we will continue to focus on our core business of chrome plating plastic. We have had to endure 2 cost increases this past year, but have been able to absorb most of them without increasing prices. In fact, in the case of one of our most popular items (260z/280z taillight bezels) we have actually been able to generate a substantial price reduction by leveraging volume commitments. Another significant development this past year is we can now offer, for the first time, detail finishing on all parts that were previously painted by Datsun (such as emblems). Our detail team has even successfully replicated the resin-type "fill" that was used by Datsun on such parts as fender emblems. Now, you can have your original Datsun parts fully restored, instead of just chrome plated. For reference purposes, I am including a link below to last year's promotion and a new collection of pics from recently completed jobs. I will follow this post with this year's pricing.

Hi, All, Feels great to be back! After taking an 8 month hiatus from my chrome plating venture due to health issues, I am finally back in the saddle again. Over the course of the past 6 months or so, I've had quite a few requests and inquiries regarding my future plans for the plating service. Also, some of you have inquired as to whether I'll be offering the year-end forum promotion that we've done for the past 2 years. As for the future plans, I have recently taken on a partner whom many of you may know (Randy Lewis). Randy is an active Datsun guy who owns a 240z, 510, and a 311 roadster and is even more passionate about Datsun's than I am. Moving forward, Randy will be spearheading the sales and marketing effort for the venture and I will be dedicating my time to the production issues. This new, improved model is called Vintage Chrome, and, as the name implies, is focused on providing high quality, affordable chrome plating of both plastic and metal to the classic car market. We are launching Vintage Chrome with a year-end special sale for all parts received at our Las Vegas depot by December 31, 2014. Our costs to chrome plate plastic have more than doubled on many pieces over the past two years and continue to rise so prices will never be lower than they are now. We are reducing these prices by 20% from our regular prices for this forum promotion only. I'll be listing some individual prices for many of the more common Z parts in a subsequent post. In the meantime, I am attaching some sample pics of past jobs that we've done. For specific quotes or more detailed general information, you may contact Randy at [email protected] Happy Holidays to all, and many thanks to those of you who patiently awaited my recovery after last year's heart surgery.
