Someone near Deland that can do chrome?

I just got a T2 and the shooter is worn pretty badly, and I want to get it re-chromed. Anyone know someone near Deland that can do this?

I spent some time awhile back looking for local platers and they don't exist.  Everyone ships stuff up north.  I believe one of the local motorcycle shops here in Jax told me it had to do with more stringent regulations here in Florida.  If you find someone please let me know.  Mike does great work, but he is usually loaded up with work.  Good luck.

I was thinking about hitting up some motorcycle shops actually. Maybe I'll call around tomorrow.

Awesome, Mike already responded to me, and he has them already done, and can do same-day exchanges. His prices are really reasonable too (well under $100).
