There is a lot of mystery to what goes on behind the walls of a chrome shop. It is glaringly apparent when a potential customer calls and remarks “you can just dip that right?” or “if I drop that off in the morning can you have it ready this afternoon?” While the answer is always a lengthy explanation as to why plating does not work that way, it is not really their fault for not knowing. After all, how often do you actually get to go in a chrome shop and see how things are done? Not to mention, it’s not like there are a lot of articles or how-to books on the subject available to the public either.
Reasons like this are exactly why we love hosting our annual open house and kick-off party prior to the Goodguy’s Rod and Custom Associations Nashville Nationals every year. Not only is it a great chance for us to have a party with the hot rodding community, but it is an excellent opportunity for us to open up our doors and show everyone how we perform the plating process. Throughout the event, we have tours that show you just what it takes to turn a rotted piece of pot-metal into chromed jewelry for your car.
This year’s annual open house and kick-off party will take place Thursday May 14, 2015 from 4pm-8pm at our facility located at 1425 Cowan Court in downtown Nashville. Starting at 4pm we will be giving away goody bags to the first 200 cars that arrive. Just collect a ticket at the gate when you arrive and present it at sign in located in our showroom. As always we will be serving some of Nashville’s best barbeque, with all of the fixings, along with downhome Cajun cuisine to registered participants of the Goodguys Nashville Nationals while supplies last. Plus, you can enjoy that food while you listen to live entertainment by the music group Backlit.
Furthermore, one of the big attractions of our open house is the incredible feature cars. Every year we have a select group of cars showcased inside our facility, which are accented by various finishes by Advanced Plating. Every year the lineup of cars gets better and better. This year is no exception, as the group will include three Ridler Award Great Eight finalists, a Concours d’Elegance winner, a one of a kind tri-five Chevrolet, and the debut of a ’27 Ford roadster featuring a brand new finish from Advanced Plating. This year’s group of cars is truly astonishing and may just be the most impressive lineup we have ever had at the open house.
So mark your calendar and make plans to come out and see the show before the show at Advanced Plating on Thursday May 14th, 2015 from 4pm-8pm and help us kick-off the 10th annual Nashville Nationals presented by the Goodguys Rod and Custom Association. We hope to see you there!
