I swear this was just a topic like a week or two ago.  You may want to do a search.

Budaman, can you tell by looking at the rim it has been split or does the chroming process cover it up?

Bill you can not tell at all were it is split chrome is flawless on mine I like his process over most other chromers because it has a wet look to it.

He will do an exchange and chrome the pulley and hub. As for the rotors, he will not chrome them for street use. He will do an excellent job of polishing them. They will look just as good as chromed when finished. There are pics in my gallery that show them.

The answer is yes he does all that, rotors are just polished just look like chrome mine are 2yrs old now and still look great

I also agree. Who ever does PE's chrome does damn good work but Matt can be a pita to deal with if something goes wrong.
