Electroplating carb
« on: October 18, 2015, 03:52:20 PM »
I'm rebuilding my Quadrajet and I want to electroplate the parts. I know Casswell sells a kit for electroplating for $180.

Has anyone done their own electroplating? Looking for other people's experiences and advice.

Other kits?

DIY kits?

If I buy the Caswell kit, what other parts would I want to use it on? $180 is expensive for a one time use while rebuilding the carb.

Thanks!
Vince

You can just clean it up real good and it should come out nice.  The carb sits under the air cleaner.  I'd go for the refinished look only if doing a nut/bolt restoration.
