    I have a few basses that have great paint but the chrome and gold plating on the bridges is showing corrosion and pitting. I have others where the patina fits the bass but I need to restore these. Anybody out there attempted this at home? Any luck with home chroming?

    Its a major undertaking and expense. Take it to a plating shop.

    That option was always on the table. I was hoping to find someone that has tried it already.

    Chrome plating is a nasty process involving some seriously harsh chemicals and is best left to a professional. Not trying to discourage you, but the initial setup would be much more expensive than having several bridges plated by a pro.
