Vin,

I use Hanlon's in Richmond for my "everyday, industrial" type stuff. Good work, good prices, but not always show quality. http://hanlonplating.com/index.php

I use Paul's Chrome Plating in Evans City, PA near Pittsburgh for my show quality stuff and to have any "pot metal" items re-furbished and plated. Top quality and you pay for what you get.

You cannot do it to a pot metal piece like the emblem, but you will save quite a bit of the cost of a re-plating if you buff the piece out yourself before you get it plated. A significant part of the cost of plating work is polishing the piece prior to plating. It is not unusual for shops to charge $50.00 per hour or more to buff out parts.

If you DYI you need to get it completely scratch free as any defects will show through the plating. Depending on what it is, and how badly it is pitted, I have started with 120 grit paper and worked all the way up to a fine polish grit on the buffing wheel. The better the buff job, the better the plating will look.
