Like many Malibu boats from the mid 2000's the chrome on my gauge bezels, glovebox door and emblems was pitted and peeling. I hated the appearance and fixing it was easier and cheaper than I expected.
I removed the gauge bezel, glove box panel and emblems from the boat over the winter and dropped them off at Industrial coatings in Omaha, NE. The glovebox door was originally chrome as well but I never liked the look and decided to go with black gloss powdercoat instead to create some contrasting color.
Chrome on alumimum is just a bad idea from Malibu due to the metalurgical properties. They made it even worse when they skipped the proper undercoatings for the chrome. Industrial coatings was able to strip off the old peeling chrome apply a heavy copper/nickel coating underneath and then rechrome the parts I wanted chromed.
The glovebox door has deteriorated to the point that they needed to lap finish the face because it had actual pits in the aluminum not just the chrome layer. Again they knocked it out of the park and left a mirror finish.
All I had to do was reinstall. Total cost under $400 with the glovebox door being a majority of that due to the extra work from corrosion.
