    Pt. 2: CloseUpTalkRadio spotlights Custom Plating Specialist

    in Business

    Brillion, WI – Chrome's unique advantages make it one of the most popular automotive metallic finishes available, used for wheels, trim, accessories and other components to offer durability and an aesthetically-pleasing appearance.
    For nearly 30 years Custom Plating Specialist has provided quality chroming and re-chroming for car and motorcycle parts. Lead by the husband-and-wife team of Terry and Mary Meetz, Custom Plating Specialist offers its restoration and customization services to clients all over the world.
    "Our reputation shines through every piece of chrome we do,” says Terry Meetz.
    Chrome plating is the technique of applying a thin layer of chromium onto a metal or plastic object. The chromed layer can be decorative, provide corrosion resistance, ease cleaning and increase surface hardness. Custom Plating Specialist offers custom chrome plating for cars, trucks, bikes, motorcycles and even pot belly stoves and jukeboxes
    “Custom Plating Specialist evolved from my father’s body shop,” recalls Meetz. “He restored vintage Thunderbirds and other classic cars. We found our chrome jobs would get lost or delivered not to our specifications. My father said, ‘Why don’t you do it yourself?’ Today, our plating business evolved into its own thing that’s recognized worldwide.”
    There are between 300 or 400 different jobs in progress at any given time in various stages of completion. Customers even include Custom Plating Specialist’s competitors. According to Meetz, a job is a job.
    “I look at it like I’m a customer,” says Meetz. “People are willing to pay more money to get a better job. We go above and beyond to make sure the customer is happy because they need to be assured we’re going to do a good job on their parts, respect their property and deliver on time.”

    Classic Chrome with Wayne Hagler of Heather's Leathers

    in Automotive

    Special Guests: Wayne Hagler, owner of Heather’s Leathers


     


    When looking at the styling of any motorcycle, new or old, your eyes are usually drawn to several things: the power plant and driveline, the paintwork, and the plating work. But, one of the most important aesthetic factors in the style of a motorcycle is the leatherwork; both on the seat, and the accessories to the machine such as luggage or leather wrapped control surfaces. In terms of restoring an old machine, the quality of the leatherwork plays a huge role in the comfort, aesthetics, correctness, and overall value. And, let’s face it: it can be hard to restore or replicate leather goods from motorcycles that date far back into two-wheeled history. This week, we are joined by the owner of one of the leading leather businesses in the motorcycle industry: Mr. Wayne Hagler of Heather’s Leathers. Wayne’s South Carolina-based leather company specializes in quality products for all types and years of motorcycles, though Heather’s Leathers has become known as giant resource for antique motorcycle enthusiasts.

    CHEF ELLIOTT'S ENTERTAINMENT SOLUTIONS

    in Entertainment

    This week, Chef Elliott has the distinct honor of highlighting the culinary and sweet genius of the ”Award-Winning Pastry Chef To The Stars," THE "Suga Chef," Pastry Chef Padua Player! Chef Padua grew up cooking with his mom in the District of Columbia.  One of the first dishes Chef Padua created was a recipe taken from the kids section in a local DC newspaper. Any opportunity that arose for the budding pastry chef to help his mom in creating a family dish, he was front and center to soak in her culinary teachings. This contributed to his creative juices and he began to fashion up his own recipes for tasty quick bread mixes and assorted fruit cobblers. Chef Padua honed his skills and worked his way up the foodie ranks to plating desserts, which lead to him assisting the pastry chef two days a week. He moved on to his first baking stint and credits Pastry Chef, Susan McCreight Lindeborg as his mentor, picking up from where his mother had laid the culinary groundwork.

    Chef Padua attended Baltimore International College, worked in the bakery at Marriott in  Georgetown University and went on to work at some of DC’s top catering houses and restaurants such as DC Coast, Café Milano, Notte Luna and Ceiba. He was reviewed by the famed DC food critic Phyllis Richman, who gave him, thumbs up on his desserts and received an official letter from Vice President Biden.


    Chef Padua has appeared on the television show, Platinum Weddings, has been a contestant on Food Network’s Sweet Genius and also provided his pastry services for the late Chuck Brown, singer Macy Gray, comedian Bill Bellamy, actress Pam Grier, comedian Damon Wayans, and singer Crystal Waters.
