When we restore a car every single bolt. screw, nut and clip is processed to return it to new and correct condition. This means re plating the part in whatever metal finish it was when new, whether it be cadmium plate, clear zinc, black zinc, black oxide or anodizing. The photo below shows a batch of fasteners representative of the care we take to make our cars perfect.
We prepare all metal trim items for show quality chrome plating, repairing the metal as required before sending the parts off to one of several chosen and trusted electroplaters.
