    Too far north. Too far east.
    I was told the chrome needs to be stripped off. Local shop wouldn't touch mine unless bare steel. I didn't get a second opinion.

    That's what I meant, get them media-blasted (shouldn't be too expensive), then powdercoated.

    Chrome is hard to sandblast off. If you can find a plater that'll strip 'em 1st, they'll be easier to blast.
