Is there any way to repair a cracked or damaged spinner or backplate?
The short answer is “sometimes”. It depends on the nature and extent of the damage. One shop that comes highly recommended is AERO SUPPORT ENGINEERING INTERNATIONAL, Inc.; Located just 1/4 mile south of Hartsfield Atlanta International Airport. Phone: 404-559-1946; Fax: 404-559-1975.
Hours 9:00am – 6:00pm EST, Monday through Friday

Please note that there are no known FAA approved chroming processes for prop spinners. They may be left natural,may be buffed to a natural polish, or may be painted. A well-polished spinner will look very much like chrome, but it does require more upkeep than chrome to keep water spots off if it, and to preserve the shine.
