I was thinking about two toneing my slide with the flats hard cromed and the top and back done in a deep black. If i had the whole thing hard cromed then bead blastd the top and rear and park/blued it would it ruin the hard crome? any help would be appreciated

Black oxide won't effect steel that is covered with hard chrome. I recall Brian Bilby mentioning that he had gotten a slide back from a plater and was suspicious of the coverage on the interior thereof (it being hard to tell sometimes because both the chrome and the bare steel are silver/gray). So, Brian threw it in the bluing tank, whereupon its interior turned, for the most part, black. The portions that were chromed were uneffected.
