Sounds like you had a good trip. Your Travco is looking good... I dig those round mirrors!

Those parking light rings are a bit of a story. Most small trim things on this Travco have been powder coated gray. I got the idea to have everything chrome plated. Unfortunately I got the bill for those two little rings at over $200 and told them to stop. They do look good though.

I am thinking that every year I will have something plated just for fun and eventually it will all get done.

i had posted a solution to the ridiculous prices on plating, not counting the wait..a while back.
Forgot how to search for it.. Went on a mission and found it once more....
The video is over 300mb and not possible to email out... Affordable to
do all four wheels etc. Guess a clear coat is mandated after using this process...
Enjoy the impressive video

BTW... Other versions of this process will be shown for your selection.
This happened to be a UK version.
Check the others.. including jay Leno's garage segments... FWIW - HTH...

Adendum:: Old time cars, before chromeing, used nickel plating ...
On u-tube are a few videos on doing this at home using
two"d" cell batteries for the process. As nickel is a slightly different
color. I believe most people would not be able to
tell the difference on "older chrome finishes" on older vehicles...
As I do produce colloidol silver for my own usage, silver plating
in a trial manner could possibly rejuvinate those darn rusty parking light rings...FWIW
