    Hi. I'm changing my basin mixer tap and the replacement has fixed 10mm chrome plated tails. I'm after some fitting tips and have some questions -

    The best way to bend the tails?

    Can I cut the tails down without damaging the chrome?

    Should I remove the chrome where the compression fitting sits?

    Thanks.
