Private Message Pete... he used to have a stretched and chromed swing arm.

I wouldn't put chrome on it. Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't chrome usually make parts less resistant to stress? I've heard that chroming wheels makes them more susceptible to cracking... I would assume the same applies to the swing arm.
