Getting this done in Bridgeport in the next few weeks. (Reliable Plating Inc) Zinc with the chromate dip after. I believe it will match OEM gold colors pretty well, but I haven't had this done before so I can't promise anything. I have a lot of hardware and carb pieces going into it, and it will be difficult to keep them all straight with ONLY my pieces.

The reason I bring this up, is that if anyone wants a few pieces plated I would be willing to add theirs into my order (since its batch based, it will make it cheaper for both of us, and I have the large batch already going in)

Those pieces must either be larger (easier to separate things) or a very specific small set of parts that I can easily pick out of all my parts.

Thinking of things like Gas caps, fan pulleys, larger brackets, hood props. Maybe you had hardware plated and you skipped a few things that you aren't worth a full batch for now.

Let me know, probably have a week or two before i drop everything off.

Also, if someone eventually sees this years in the future and wants to put together a batch job.... please shoot me a PM, as I am sure there will be more things I find later that I will want done as well... and won't be able to justify a batch just for that small chunk of parts.

Update on this:

Went to get my job done, but because they rack plate only at the Reliable plating in Bridgeport... I need to split up my job with another plater for the small hardware that will be done in a barrell.

So I am now looking at a smaller job for the rack plating, focusing on only larger pieces that are easily hung.


I intend to rack plate many of the items in this picture.:
- gas cap
- fan pulley
- hood latch hardware
- inspection light
- fuel rail
- heat shield
- etc

So if anyone has bigger parts like this that are easy to hang, now is the time to let me know so we can get our ducks in a row and reduce the price burden. I think the job would cost around $100. So this could be a very effective way to get some larger but very visible parts Yellow zinc plated (like factory finish) I don't mind bearing the bulk of the cost, assuming you guys drop the parts off with me. (unless of course you have a lot of stuff to add)

Please let me know as soon as possible. I live in Milford, CT.

batch one


Fuel rail came out a little grainy because i didn't prep it well enough, the other stuff looks really great.
