    Prob best to go via Richco in Wualai Rd. Richie does powdercoat but is sure to know where to get the best quality chroming done here in CNX.

    Cheers,

    Pikey.

    I use a shop near the old Lampum Rd and the intersecting road that runs to the airport. If heading toward the airport, it is stuck down a little side soi past the Ford tractor dealer. I can drive around CM, but aside from loh Kroh do not know the name of a single road.

    Quality is not great, and you have to insist on good work. They do not copper or nickel plate first but simply a one step chrome process.

    Richie knows this shop as well and more likely to know the name of the road

    From the description, it sounds like the place where I had the pipes on my Norton done and to be honest, I was not impressed. Cheap at about 1500 THB for 2 downpipes & silencers but had some bubbling after only a couple of months. I'd think Richie or his Dad Mike would know of a better quality outfit if one indeed exists....

    Cheers,

    Pikey.
