I don't offer a chroming service, however I recommend contacting Chuck or Kevin at VMI Inc., the very same shop that chromed the original C-3PO suits for Lucasfilm. They metalized my suit and it turned out great. Their price is around $1250. You can also try http://www.vacuummetallizing.ca I believe their prices are lower.


WEARABLE FIBERGLASS C-3PO PROJECT
 
------------------------------------

For years I had been searching for a good suit, but none had the detail, accuracy or wearability I wanted. I found a private collector who had a Disney suit in storage and didn't know what to do with it. It had been made several years ago by a studio who fabricated it specifically for him from an old Disney park suit. This was NOT based on a GA suit nor any other suit that is currently being made available. We have modified the suit to be wearable and to fit and function just like the movie costume. We are offering parts at very close to our cost so they can be as affordable as possible.

TORSO/SHOULDERS
Some details on the torso were left off or needed reconstruction, so we've added those. The arms extended out straight to the shoulders, with no ribbed ring in between. That has been modified and the ring built. The shoulders have been reinforced to fit more flush with the ring.

BICEPS & FOREARMS
The ridge details on both the bicep and forearm were too far apart as compared to the AD suit and the ridges were missing from the bicep rear slot so those have been added and modified. The piston mounting disc on the bicep has been raised to a more accurately prominent height. The piston connectors have been added as well to both the forearm elbows and biceps. The biceps also did not fit flush within the forearms, but that has been fixed as well.

HANDS
Each finger tip and finger armor piece has been seperately sculpted and the handplates have been sculpted to the ESB/ROTJ appearance with the wrap-around palm plates. Buyers will need to add the small palm squares and wires (squares can be cut from styrene and glued to glove along with wires)

THIGHS
Ours have the "teeth" that extend down to meet the shins and have been resculpted from scratch. The large top thigh screws have been added and the "v" seams at the back redone. An interior fin has also been added to the thigh that hangs down and keeps the thigh & shin rotating in sync while fitting together with machined-like precision.

SHINS
The knee area and discs have been completely redone for sharpness and have the accurate low-profile appearance, flush with the thighs. They also have the proper zig-zag cut up the sides at the wedge splitting the front and back halves.

HEAD
For wearable heads, James Sleeth offers excellent fiberglass, resin or vacuformed heads. starbuck@gate.net

Also, check with MonCal for a very nice vacuformed vacuformed head.
