Fibreglass can have a coating applied that looks very much like chrome. Good idea.
Martin, If Morello (in Brazil)says the quality is good, then I would believe him. He has done well for me, even steered me clear of items he said came in varying degrees of quality depending on the supplier. I will send him an email now and ask him directly. When I get an answer I will let you know.
Yes thanks, I'm in touch with Jose, he seems sound. He also has other bits that I'm interested in so I've sent him a list to price. Feeling very positive I'll let you know how it works out. Greatly appreciate you putting me in touch...I owe you a beer! Martin
