Juat got done using a Caswell “Plug &Plate” “CopyChrome” nickel alloy plating kit to make the grill and bumpers on the pedal car project more resilient and better looking.


Some pieces may need to be re-treated , and none of it has been polished out yet, but I’ve got a half bottle of electrolyte left, so not a problem.

It was a giant pain to get the metal prepped, because the primer on the body was thick and tough, and then I had to try to get all remnants of any oils or contaminants off the surface.

When I'm done, I will clear coat the plating to help preserve it, then mask it in the reverse of that to re-prime where paint is missing and make the rear light chrome look like thin trim strips.
