Chrome Plating

Can anyone tell me which parts on my 1925 Star were plated and what type of plating was used? So far I've identified the radiator shell and neck, headlight rings, upper and lower bumper bars (nothing else on bumper?, door handles, acorn nuts holding windshield (whatabout those holding the windshield brace to the body?), instrument rings (all?), steering wheel spokes, throttle and spark levers, top snaps, grease nipples and hubcaps.

Re: Chrome Plating

The correct plating for a 1925 car is Nickle. Chrome plating wasn't available until 1928.

The spokes of the steering wheel were painted black. Nickle is correct for all the other items mentioned. The horn button housing is also plated. Bright Nickle is OK.
