Default Brass on modified bumpers

Where is Advnced Plating located?

My original bumpers need to be refitted, some holes plugs (trailer hitch) and what not.
I am not going to try to eliminate the bumper bolts.
I also want to give my 57 front bumper a one piece look.
Also, I would like to have it acid dipped to reduce weight.
It is a driver type car that I plan to rechrome or at least nickel plate.

Would it be advisible to use brass in the way of a partial filler (joints)?

What is a good way to do these mods for good results? Thanks!

Most high end chrome shops prefer to do their own modifications. According to the sponsor on "My Classic Car", they undo most owner modifications and redo them from the get-go, which ends up costing the customer more money from the start. Just something to think about.

I have seen the question about using brass as a filler before. Many years ago I was looking at a '56 Bel Air that had just been finished. Rechromed bumpers showed some "ghosting" where patches had been welded in. I asked about them and the owner said he used brass filler to blend in the patches. I asked him why he would do that, the rest of the bumper is steel, why not just weld them in with steel rod or filler wire and finish like the rest of the bumper...
My point is, I see no reason to use anything but steel when working on a bumper that is to be chromed.

Points well taken;
chevman57- who, like another wise man told me once or twice (and I still forot) sometimes its better to let someone who knows what the bell their doing work on something insead of trying my trying to work on something I know nothing about and get it all wrong.
astroracer suggests I want to do the brass work which I don't and although I have never heard of ghosting there's no reason t doubt him. Thank you both!

As an aside I guess, I have been told me that home welding on bumpers tend to show up air pockets when they are dipped in acid, furthering chevman57's idea that it is best left to professional repair.

Voids in welds are products of the person operating the welder. Insufficient gas, bad cleaning practices and/or bad technique will all cause pockets of gas to form in the weld. If a competent welder is doing the work, this should not be an issue.

Default Bumpers

Think about it, if the customer does repair/modification, why would any plater guarantee the work if plating were to be faulty. It's like a convertible top mfg guarantee the product if customer, not qualified installer, has a problem after installation. When I had my own shop, if a customer supplied parts, there was no warranty on parts.
