Chrome plating a 007

I just bought a daisy 8007 and think about chroming it. Does it require any special treatment (degreasing, removing old paint-that's obvious) Any kind of other special prep work? It will get chrome plated outside, as well as inside, right? What about tolerances?

I will share what little I know here. Chrome plating is an electrical process, so (in layman terms) because it uses electrons to deposit material, typically the inside will not receive much plating and what it does will be mostly at the end, unless it is intentional by depositing an anode inside the tube. The edges and corners will typically receive more. I would recommend cleaned and stripped of paint and oils. Keep in mind, the finish you want will start at the parent metal. I.E. dust, vs. high polish. Chrome is typically a three step process. I believe copper first, nickel, then Chrome.
