Unhappy Classic Chrome - Out of business??

Does anyone know what is going on with Classic chrome in Santa Ana?
I just sent some stuff to them and when I went to their site to get the email I saw a note on their contact us page saying "Company Closing 1 June 2017".

Crap, my parts are in transit so with some luck I should get them returned.

Meanwhile I need to find another chrome plater that does a good job.

All suggestions welcome.

I cannot vouch for their workmanship, although Bitchin' Rides (Dave Kindig) uses Ogden Chrome.

Shit, that's no good. I just called them and asked if it was a temporary closing, but the guy said they were closed for good. Told him I had a friend who has already shipped some parts and he assured me they'd be sent back.

That would be funny if it was not so serious. You can't be a chrome whore with no chrome as that just leaves the whore. Hmm.......Na I'm too old for that.

I don't know how you shipped them, but if it were me, whoever you used, I would contact them and tell them the situation to make sure you get your stuff back.

Yeah, I did that. The parts were in Los Angeles and they are on their way back to Sydney.
