I have a genuine BL S/H one that has no dents but needs re-chroming.
PM me if it's of interest.

Hi
Sorry for delay reply, thank you for your response to my request, I will look into the possibilities of chroming and get back in touch.

Hi
I have contacted all local chroming works and all have reservations that after stripping and polishing there could be distortion, this is without seeing the item. Thank you for your offer but on listening to them I have decided that only a good condition one is the way forward.

I had a nos one re chromed at Derby Plate and it was perfect better than new and no distortion.
Their works perfection but it is not cheap!

I was earwigging at a show a couple of years ago, possibly Himley, and there was an ex-BMC? bloke trying to offload a stack of surrounds that he had stashed away to a trader.

One on eBay has patina but looks pretty good?
