    Silvia chrome plating at group head peeling

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi,

    Just like to get some advice.

    Only very recently I noticed that the chrome plating on the silvia was lifting off only ever so slightly at the collar of the group head.

    Has anyone else had this problem?
    Any advice on what can be done about it.

    I can only imagine that the problem will get worse as steam and water sits in there.
    Thanks

    well in a way thats good to know that its only cosmetic,
    but Im hoping it doesnt get a lot worse, and peels all the way through to the front of the group head, that would just like ugly
