About Us
About Us
Coat of Chrome is a small company owned by a Chemist with a passion for antique/classic car restoration.  His national award winning automobiles include a 1937 Cord, 1939 Pontiac, 1967 Chevelle Malibu convertible and a 1967 Chevelle SS convertible. All of these cars were restored by the company owner Donald Pirre.

 In completing these restorations, Don found that getting parts re-chromed was not only becoming prohibitively expensive but service providers had become almost impossible to locate. This led him to find other alternatives that would be acceptable in both application and appearance. In his search, Don found a process derived by a team of Canadian and European professionals that was not only applicable to his auto restoration needs but suitable for an endless list of applications . Don went to Canada and learned the process directly from the system developers and then opened his own business (Coat of Chrome) in the US.

Don was familiar with the chemical processing aspects involved in the coating system because he worked for nearly 30 years as a professional chemist. His skills in automotive refinishing combined with his chemical processing knowledge make him uniquely qualified to produce consistently high quality product for you or your business.  The Coat of Chrome business started in 2003 and has been growing ever since. He has now been servicing not only the auto restoration and customizing industries but also other industries such as the arts, music, hobby & craft, lighting, signage, interior design modeling and rapid prototyping.
