When you chrome plate something, you etch it then copper plate
it.  Then you polish the copper and replate/repolish as needed
until all the pits are gone.  Basically why chrome plating costs
so much.  You can sand and polish and buff, then take the piece
in an have it plated as-is to save money.  Good looking chrome is
all in the surface prep.  IMHO cheaper to have someone else do
