I've been plating parts with "Electroless Nickel", really easy, prepare the parts then just simmer them in the solution in a stainless pan.
Once buffed, they look the same a chrome and I'm getting up to 4 thou thickness.
I always take the easy way out
The spanner is a new chrome one for comparison and the two bolts are straight from the plating bath, unbuffed.
