Resect for having a go at plating them yourself

I used to have a kit but have since found a firm who do an exceptional job for a great price so don't have to mess with all of those carcinogenic chemiclas

Must admit Paul wouldn't do it again

Pretty certain that £20 won't zinc all the bits on 3 fizzies, plus, youre reliant on the plater on the day to what kind of finish you get, plus, there is always that chance of damage or loss of that important costly part, plus, after prepping, you might not be able to get to the platers, so your parts are left unprotected, until you do, plus, you don't have to talk to anyone !

So, yes, well worth it, plus, I can say, I did that!

Bit of an update

First time trying using the yellow passivate, bit of a mare to be honest, it was just not happenings, but that was down to me as you really need to have all the elements that are involved clean.

Anyhow this was my results of a long and very hot day
