    Looking for someone who actually chromes and polishes the ramps? Just had my wire ramps done and they were horrible, so i need them done again. Anyone use someone local is So. Cal who does good work? Thanks Mike Paris

    Seems that all the Cal EPA laws have driven out the quality guys. It'd probably be better to start a list of shops 'not to use'. I tried Van Nuys Plating and won't use them again, too long of a wait and poor quality. Other plating shops I talked to either send it out to be chromed, or did mostly areospace work and wouldn't take any pinball parts, even just for nickel plating.
    Mike, who did you use for the wire ramps?

    Hi,

    I use MJB Chrome Plating, for all my pinball plaiting. Ask for Bill

    Let him know that Robert in Hemet, with all the pinball parts sent you his way

    He only dose triple chrome plating and his work if fantastic!!! He can also do a what is called "flash brass plaiting" Gives you that gold look to your ramps and will have then clear coated right after plating. If you are wanting the gold look it is not fast to get them done, but great looking. If you would like pictures of the work he has done for me, I would be happy to get some for you.

    Address: 236 S Riverside Ave, Rialto, CA 92376 - (909) 875-1910

    Hope this is helpful,

    Robert
    PS: I just called Bill before posting up his information and he is off to see the doctor so best to contact starting on Tuesday or call and leave a message
