I sent the guy an e-mail to ask what process was used for the chroming. I recently contacted a local company to do the exact same thing. I was quoted $150 to do vacuum chrome metalizing and $495 to do actual chrome dip process. It appears that this one is a vacuum job (which is not necessarily bad, just over priced).

Here's the ebay guys response:
Ebay Seller said:

"Ten times the price...blowing them out"

Puhleeze, show me the person paying $5,000 for a stock plastic grille that has been chromed.

At least with the STRUT grille you're getting something unusual and handmade.
