PLATING SERVICES

BOOSTERS | COIL BRACKETS | JACK SHAFTS | NUTS & BOLTS | HOOD HINGES | ANY METAL PART | ALL MAKES

We do plating for all makes and models, including Ford, Chrysler, American Motors Corporation and more. Though we focus on classic autos, we can electroplate virtually anything made out of metal (e.g., cast iron, steel) such as machine parts. If there's a part you don't see listed below, simply contact us and we'll discuss whether it's something we handle. See our Shipping page for important preparation tips. 

CADMIUM

NOW

AVAILABLE

CLEAR ZINC
Clear Zinc Plating

This plating is the same as the  new silver nuts and bolts you'd buy at the hardware store. Use it to renew the original finish that was used on many parts of your car such as bolts, brackets and fasteners. Clear Zinc provides a more durable original finish and won't chip.  Appears Silver in color.

ZINC DICHROMATE
Zin Dichromate Gold Platers Near Me

Far superior to any spray can product available, Zinc Dichromate is the same finish found when opening most original brake boosters. This gold plating has red and green running through it. Note: Metal that has pitting will still have pits under the plating when replated unless polished out.  Available in Gold Iridite.

CADMIUM
Cadmium Plating

Cadmium is a soft white metal that is resistant to mold and bacterial growth. General Motors discontinued its use around 1966. The main difference between zinc and cadmium is that the latter gives the plating a metallic appearance. Cadmium is available in Clear and Gold.

ZINC PHOSPHATE (BLACK)
Black Zinc Phosphate Plating

Zinc Phosphate replaces the unsightly paint many restorers use incorrectly. It's suitable for hood hinges springs and latches, carb linkage, brackets, and assorted pieces, including clutch cross shafts. It won't chip like most painted items do. Available in Gray and Black. 

ZINC PHOSPHATE (GRAY)
Gray Zinc Phosphate Plating

Zinc Phosphate replaces the unsightly paint many restorers use incorrectly. It's suitable for hood hinges springs and latches, carb linkage, brackets, and assorted pieces, including clutch cross shafts. It won't chip like most painted items do. Available in Gray and Black.

BLACK ZINC
Black Zinc Plating

Black Zinc plating is used for nuts, bolts, fasteners, brackets and assorted other items. It protects parts from rust and corrosion, and it won't chip like other painted items. Comes in Satin Black over a silver base.

PROTECT YOUR INVESTMENT

You've restored your brake booster, reupholstered the interior, stripped the paint  and polished the chrome. You've spent a lot of time and money on your baby, so now's not the time to skimp on the final touches.

 

Don't trust your parts to spray paint which chips easily and doesn't authentically replicate the original condition of your parts. Instead, protect them the right way with electoplating! Plating deposits a thin layer of material (e.g., zinc, cadmium) onto your car's metal components, providing a protective layer from corrosive conditions. 

Visit our sister store, Detail Plating, for before and after samples of our work and tips on protecting your plated parts.

PREPARING YOUR PARTS

FOR GRAY & BLACK PHOSPHATE

Parts must be free of any grease and grime prior to shipment. In order to ensure the optimal results, we will remove any remaining paint and undercoating on a time and materials basis. 

FOR CLEAR, GOLD OR BLACK

Parts must be free of any grease and grime prior to shipment. In order to ensure the optimal results, we will remove any remaining paint and undercoating on a time and materials basis. 

Parts that have been sandblasted (and shouldn't have been) may be polished, also. There is an extra charge to polish parts as this is not a normal step for these types of plating. Phosphate plating will mask many imperfections in the metal, such as pits and, as such, should never require polishing.

Please remove any small springs that you can from your parts prior to you shipping as they will not be plated.  If in doubt, call or email us first.
