    00 or 0000? I would think 00 would be a little ruff. Aluminum foil would be even better.

    What causes the gold discoloration on chrome?
    Will this remove it?

    I've done some research on the EPA regulations for chrome plating, read a couple times that the same standards were not adopted by Canada. On one of the sites it stated that due to this Canada is able to produce a far superior chrome plate. I don't believe very many opinions that I read on the internet, so does anyone on here know if this is true? I will be re-plating some parts on Sue's bike, gonna try a local plater in Toronto and wanted a bit of feedback before I pull the trigger. Thanks

    I thought most of the regulations were regarding waste water and air filtration at the plants rather than any particular process changes. So not sure how it could be "better" although I don't know a whole lot. But I assume the platers have it figured out by now it's been 25 years since the last regulation.

    I do believe it was 2007 that the last regulation was implemented, could be wrong tho.. As far as the process I think certain chemicals involved in plating were banned from use in the US and not Canada...again could be wrong. Just thought someone may know the inside skinny on this..

    I used to work at a chrome plating plant and they used cyanide in one of the very first dip tanks!!! The plater was one of the largest around. It took 1hr. 45mins to go from first tank to the last one!!!

    I would suggest getting moisture from somewhere other than your tounge especially after the compound is on the wipe. Hate to think of ingesting this.

    Do you hit the area around the plugs? My fins are diamond cut and they don't take much to get a shine.

    You should get some chrome headbolt covers to clean that up

    Well, Sue did order some of the blue job, and I ordered a bottle of the Noxon. We will see what works best. I have a feeling though that Sue will not be helping ...:oldbang:.
