Re-Chrome or replace chrome parts on 1966 VW

Im looking for some advice on a 1966 Volkswagen “13 window” Microbus Deluxe. Im wondering if it is better to replace the rusting Chrome parts on the vehicle or get them re chromed. I think it will be less expensive to order new parts but wonder if it would lessen the Van’s long term value. Im hoping to find some suggestions or a forum to help with the decision. Thanks for your time, Jess

They rechrome stuff for less money in the states sometimes and yes non original parts can lessen the value if your trying to get a lot of money out of it.
