Chroming speaker grills (expanded metal)

    First off....I'm not trying to take anything away from Jim Bergantino here. I love his product and actually own both his 212 cab and his 310 cab. Love them.

    However...I've got an oddball 2x10 cab that I use for practice sits mostly (portability). However, on VERY rare occasion I set up the whole rig. Looks like crap sitting on those pretty Bergs. The cab itself is well built, and if the grill was chrome, it would look great with the Bergs.

    Any ideas how to (or who does) chroming of expanded metal. The spray can paint method DOESN'T work by the way.

    Any ideas

    Call a local motorcycle shop; they probably know folks who do chrome work.
  3. this is comming from a metal worker. if the grill is metal get it sand blasted and then just buy a good crom spay paint. since the grill doesnt see alot of wear and tear it will do fine and not cost u much.

    Yep. I don't think it's cheap though.
