We've use this place for a lot of our stuff at the lab. It's a REALLY rough area though, but if that doesn't bother you, they're always our lowest bidder. So they should be cheap.

EDIT: forgot to paste.

Krell Laboratories

Plating And Polishing Service in Chicago, IL

I don't know if they have a website or not, might have to contact via phone #

belmont plating near gene and jude's dog joint. i swear ive seen copper plated stuff, i know they do all sorts of chrome/bright plating.

also i think that eastwood has a spray on copper plating appearance coating without the oxidation. i know they have spray on zinc/yellow chromate stuff.

i contacted that Krell place they do copper plating, for what i want done they quoted me $300 witch isn't to bad, its probably a dozen or so parts that id like to have done. the only thing they couldn't help with is copper platting the wheels. so im debating of doing the wheels in copper or having them blasted and powder coated a matte black.
