    We've had people your age use our kits successfully before, but take note:

    1. Chrome is an acid. It burns. It corrodes and it has been proven to cause cancer in lab animals. Don't get it on yourself or breath in fumes. Use with extreme caution.

    2. Chroming requires large amounts of power. You should only operate a plating set-up with an adult present.

        Rubber gloves, apron, eye protection and a respirator with acid/gas cartridges.

        You can get a respirator for $20 or so from a DIY store like Building Box. Make sure to get "Acid/Gas" cartidges for the respirator.

        The chrome kit comes with a fume control system, but better safe than sorry.

        This is all in the manual.

        In the garage is generally the best place.
