you can wrap them cheaper.ceramic coating is cheaper than chrome and has the advantage of heat dissipation,and never blues on you.comes in some chrome-ish finishes as well

There are "Brush plating" repair kits available to do this yourself.

Unless you plan on getting into doing this regularly, it's probably not worth the cost.

Given the price of professional chrome plating these days, it's probably actually cheapest just to buy a new muffler. It's certainly fastest.
