We were quite lucky, that almost all chrome parts were still mounted on the ship. Only some were missing like the middle air intake covers, the ones surrounding the engine covers and some other small bits and pieces. Morosini in Italy was of great help and got some of them also he organized the chroming at Galvanautic in Italy. All bits and pieces came out perfectly.
The work before was a hurdle: the old chrome had to be removed by hand as we were not sure about the material below; brass or copper? Steel?
