After 5 years, the black paint on both the master cylinder is badly chipped. The aasy fix, paint them.. But I was thinking of getting them chromed instead.

I have never sent parts out for chroming and know very little about the process. Is there anything I should know? What kind of preparation do the part needs before the dip? Can I save money if I do it myself?

Thanks for your input :)

The chromer normally does the prepping as part of the procedure.The masters will need to be completely disassembled by you.If you don't know the companys procedure,write a simple note telling them the areas that shouldn't be chromed,like the stem of the pivot pin for the levers,the hole the pin fits into and the bore where the seals ride.
If you have site glasses,these will need to be removed and noted for no chrome in the bore where the o-ring seats.
New seals for the site glasses are sold at a Harley dealer.
