Any chance of you showing us how you did the plating. Been thinking of setting up a tank to see how I get on.

I'll post up some pics tomorrow after when I'm back in the garage.

I underestimated the amount and quality of prep required so I've only had limited success. I tried plating a caliper after a 3 day bath in oxalic acid to get rid of the rust, an alkaline based degrease and an activating hydrochloric acid bath but it went horribly wrong!

My little girl is 1 today. She's a real little madam. It's getting easier though. Btw it feels like the past year has flown by so enjoy every moment even if it doesn't feel great at the time.
