Yellow Zinc Plated parts
#1
Hi folks,

I am planning to get several parts yellow zinc plated as per original so thought I would send off a job lot 'whilst I'm at it'.

So - does a definitive list exist of all the yellow zinc plate bits on the car?  Many bits I have are badly rusted and I can't tell!

From what I know:

Horn brackets
Lower radiator brackets
Front fascia central support bracket
Fuel filler cap (?)
Rear OEM exhaust mounts *
Water pump brackets inside chassis box section
Trailing arm bolt retaining plates
Main crank pulley
Steering Rack brackets
Anti-roll-bar brackets

(* I Had these powder coated a couple of years ago so won't be doing them. this time)

Does anybody know of any other bits before I send a heap of stuff off?  And any reccomendations as to where to get bits done please?  


Many thanks, Rich

Hi Richard...unless you are doing an "Andy Snell", I'd just do the ones you can see..., including the heater bottle mounting brackets, the idler pulley brackets, the brackets that support the throttle spool, ..why dont you pop around again and have a look at my car again? I'm free all morning today? I can get them done for you in due course.
We go on hols on Friday.

Chris - many thanks for your time yesterday - I now have removed a collection of about 14 rusty bits with small amounts of yellow remaining for re-plating - will get them over to you presently but no immediate hurry to get them done. There'll be a second batch when I get a bit further in... (TAB plates, brake back plates etc etc)
