Has anyone any tips on diy electroplating. Thinking of giving it a go with zinc plating and poss chromate plating. Seems straight forward but i believe the secret is in the prep - getting the parts really clean.
Any tips appreciated.

Re: Oddball 1975 MGB Convertible

Yes got a similar one manufactured may 1975. According to the book Original MGB there was a period about 12 months when the interior and under bonnet was still pre rubber bumper.
See my blog
A PO converted it from RB to CB.
