Re-chroming plastic is very expensive, especially if it's only for a few small bits.. To get it done properly they need strip the old chrome which is normally done by dipping the item in acid, but unfortunately plastic tends to melt in acid hence why it's expensive to re-chrome plastic...

Good tech article though, should save people from spending a fortune on new ones on ebay
