    I know that Metalife will put down a coat of nickel, then chrome over it to get good adhesion to aluminum. APW charges extra to plate aluminum but do not say what is involved. Call 'em up.

    yes,
    but it needs to be nickel plated first. This process works, but the finish will be more brittle then it would if applied to steel.

    Robar just came out with a new version of NP3 which is pretty slick. :supergrin: While not quite as abrasion resistant as chrome it is more corrosion resistant.
