1968 Magic Chef Stove Top

I have a 1968 27' Overlander that I am restoring. I have now got to the Stove Top - a Magic Chef 3-burner. It works fine but all of the chrome-wear is heavily rust-pitted (The burner 'drip pans', the base exposed between the burners, and the raising top all need work). (See photo attached).

I am hoping that you can tell me what are my options? I'm thinking that I could strip the unit down and try to find a plater locally who can replate them. Or maybe I'll have to replace the whole stove top. Is there a drop-in replacement? The overall dimensions are 32 1/4" by 16"

Many thanks.[IMG]file:///E:/DCIM/100NIKON/DSCN0785.JPG[/IMG]

Looks a little worst then mine. I used SOS pads on everything and it came out pretty good, not perfect. My next try will be some Navel Jelly to see if that will get rid of the rest. Then coat with something to keep the rust a bay. I'll post results.

Mine looked a little better , but the pan underneath was really bad. I took the whole thing apart and had the Pan powder coated then I had the two top plates cromed and the lid and ring polished. I am still looking for some new knobs and the little red indicators. I do not have pictures as I have not put it back together yet.

Maybe another option...? The parts should be heated between and after the second coat - so you'd have to put them in a hot UNLIT oven.
