    On my Technika, the frame was aluminum with corrosion under the chrome plating. The chrome was flaking off in places, etc. It looks like new now. I hated to spend the money, but in retrospect, it was well worth it.
    This is very encouraging, thanks.

    I have an email in to someone, who knows someone, who will know who to contact locally about places that do plating.

    Do you think that a tin-zinc finish will look right? I have my doubts. It is a whole lot cheaper though.

    Check and see what kits they offer.
    Oh, I was looking at a more expensive kit. The electroless kits are far less expensive. These may do the trick, thanks!
