The Norton emblems on my Navigator petrol tank are in poor condition and need re-chroming but I am told they are made of Zamak and you can not strip the chrome with acid as it will damage the base metal.
Can someone please advice how to refinish the the tank emblems?
I sent you a PM.
Have received the PM and thanks for the information.
Is the re-finishing a secret???
Can you share the info with the rest of us?
Ulrich had his parts re-chromed at this company
RCJ(Metal Finishers) Ltd. Units 3/4 Pindar Works, Pindar Rd, Hoddesdon,
Hertfordshire, EN11 0BZ.
As no one in Germany would undertake the work.
I have made some local inquiries in South Wales and the problem is striping the old chrome with the acid the chrome shops use as it will damage the base metal.
I think it will be posible to mechanically remove the old chrome and then polish by hand then normal re-chroming should be possible. I will post again if it comes out okay.
