Re: Plating

I used to do a bit of gold plating, but it was about 25 years ago now ....I do know a couple of guys who do it for a living tho

What do you want to put on the bolts?

Re: Plating

Never done it myself, but Mr Goolgle found this...

Quite pricey though and probably a lot of messing about. Have you had a word with any local platers to see if they will do your bits and bobs with a larger run for a few pound notes?

Why do today what you can put off until tomorrow...

Wanna see what I drive? No pics of the latest Passat, but you can see the Scenic II here and the CB1000R here!

Previous Passat here and Bandit here.
