  • GEARZ host and TV Personality

    Advanced Plating doesn’t just slap a quick “shine” on some metal, they work and restore the parts to perfection before the Chrome ever goes on.    That’s why their stuff looks so good and lasts so long…….. and it’s why I use them on all the GEARZ projects.

    Over the 20 years of running Strange Motion, finding the right plating shop was always an issue. Whether it be quality, time frame or just how they handled their end of the project. Lots of stress and sleepless nights was to be expected. After I found and used Advanced Plating the first time, all the stress of dealing with a plating shop went away. They are honest and upfront with the process, time frame and quality of end result. As a bonus they are all car people and "get it".Advanced Plating has never let me down, whether it being for a TV show project, or projects at Strange Motion. Advanced Plating never disappoints.
