Back from plating :-)

I got the phone call from the zinc platers to say my parts were ready, straight over to collect and get them dropped off for powder coating. The plan is to blast to remove rust, pickle to remove the last bits of corrosion and grease, zinc passive for corrosion protection and powder coat for colour. I’m quite aware that powder coating isn’t the most durable finish but hopefully it should be a problem with the zinc underneath to keep corrosion at bay. I’ll inject wax into the sections that will accept it.
