Patience! Its coming.

For those wondering, the chrome plating is real as in

1. The part is impregnated with silver so it will conduct electricity.
2. Then it is built up with copper, sanded and buffed.
3. A nickel-cobalt plating alloy for corrosion resistance is applied.
4. The final stage is the chrome plating.

and not some cheap vaccum metalizing process.
