Hi all,

I would like to get a few items refreshed on the Aero, and to match the original factory finish of Gold Zinc I need to find somewhere to replate a few items, however most places I have enquired at no longer use gold and all they offer is silver.
Does anyone know of anywhere that does the gold?

Ideally in Bedfordshire or North Buckinghamshire so its not to far from me, but I can post if needs be.

Thanks! cheers

I've used Past Parts, Bury St Edmunds, tel 01284 750729 for servo rebuilds & they offer various plating finishes inc gold passivate (which i think is done in-house) may be worth a call

I used Poeton to do some Teflon coating for parts in the factory I worked at. They had a metal plating unit 300 metres from us in Cardiff and I went on a tour with the rep. They did a range of platings, chrome, nickel, cadmium and others. They did the Teflon in Gloucester area I think. They had a dragonly coated in a Teflon variant in a display...impressive.

Also have a look at Frost as they do diy electroplating kits plus a lot of coating treatments.

I used this firm recently. I dropped and collected it and they were terrific value and superb quality.

I know they do accept parcels of stuff if you want to send it

Yes they did a shed load of bits for my escort recently and they’re superb value too.

Have to say also that she was well pleased wink
