Tell me, is the zinc plating expensive?

Hi Kev, not overly expensive. Because I'm getting small jobs done all the time it's not as cost effective but it's still quite reasonable.

So you may remember this POS from January....

Image

I finally did some more work on it recently. After I'd finished lead filling the holes in my original centre piece I had to grind back the filling and prep the metal for epoxy primer. The outside came up nice but the inside (which is visible when the bonnet is open) is really pitted. I used filler to level the surface off so it will come up nice once it's painted. You can see the pits in the images.

Image

Image

The plastic end peices were looking pretty shabby also. They had to be rubbed back in prep for priming also.

Image

It turns out that under all that grime, rust and black paint that there was some original colour under there which was great as it gave us a chance to colour match the paint. Hiro, one of Troy's painters mixed up some colour for me ready for paint.

Image

Troy painted up all the pieces for me ready for reassembly and now I'm ready to go, just need some time to sit down and work out how to put it all back together ;)

I also picked up some other gems.

Image

Some OEM S20/GTR turnbuckles which I think look better than the plastic end type

Image

and some NOS scuff plates from a guy in QLD for a crazy cheap price! :D
