Quote from: raueda1 on 13 April 2023, 09:42 AMAn interesting and ambitious project! Wonderful! I had a similar challenge but went a different path: ultrasonic cleaning followed by further cleaning with sand blaster using walnut shell blast media. Then off to THIS place. You're in SLC so it's local and reasonable pricing. They do LOTS of old car work. I ended up doing virtually everything under the hood as well walnut blasting other stuff for a nice satin finish (WUR, thermostat housing, etc). And, like yourself, polished the valve covers. Everyone should polish their valve covers! Looks fabulous. Cheers,

I think I too hastily dismissed Quality Plating when I called them last year about some chrome plating and they told me "Sorry – No car parts" (which their site reiterates). Sounds like that's just for chrome and I should give them another look!
