Rim chroming / painting brake calipers

Does anyone have any ideas about how much it might cost to get:
4 rims chromed (98 cobra 17x8)
or
4 brake calipers painted (matched to the color of my car)

appreciate any information, also if anyone can recommend a good place to get this done in the north dallas area it would also be appreciated.

A few years ago I got some 98 cobra wheels plated. Cost me $500 but I know the price has gone up since. You might get them done for $600.

I used Pulidos in Balch Springs off Dubby lane.

Might consider powder coating over chrome or paint. It will last and you have more options in my opinion....

You are not free whose liberty is won by the rigour of other, more righteous souls. Your are merely protected. Your freedom is parasitic, you suck the honourable man dry and offer nothing in return. You who have enjoyed freedom, who have done nothing to earn it, your time has come. This time you will stand alone and fight for yourselves. Now you will pay for your freedom in the currency of honest toil and human blood."
