I had a 2000SE 25th anniversary that had many chrome plated items on it.
Worked for a GM plant that chrome plated metal alloys and plating grade ABS plastics.

What do you mean by etching?
Transfer, I hope, means what we called Hot Stamping which is the transfer of different colored foils onto plastic parts. I am unaware of Honda using this process. Didn't prove to have very good durability back when we did it!
