Why does appoint our cars with candmium bling remind me of the Italian guys I know—- that wear all that I have obviously arrived —- Gold Jewelry for some reason ? LOL !!!
Opening the hood to an engine compartment done in all candmium coating would be a very different and Wow kind of an experience for anyone looking at the car anyplace it might be
Never saw anything like that and might be a better replacement for the more common chrome custom parts Huuuuuummmmmmmmmmmm!
The coating really goes well if your car is Seara Gold Jason — I would be thinking
Correct spelling to cadmium in above post
I have the nose apart on my 64. I discovered that Cadillac made extensive use of gold cad plating on underhood hardware. After all the years that have passed, most of it would be worn away, but you can still tell how items were plated by examining hidden surfaces of the part in question. Very few of the bolts and washers under the hood were not so plated, and these are usually the really small screws, like the ones that hold switches and resistors to the heater box.
On my car, when I pulled the brake booster to paint the firewall, I discovered that it was actually plated silver cadmium from the factory. Most that I have seen were gold cad, but I have seen originals on some GM cars that were silver. In my case, since my car is an unrestored survivor that I intend to drive a lot, and lacking time, I am cleaning my hardware as I go and using Eastwood coatings to simulate the plating. With this approach, going light on the coats is a must. Sparkling clean parts are also a must. Glass bead, or use a wire wheel on a grinder or drill to clean. It is not as nice as the freshly plated hardware that Jason had done, but it is still better than corrosion. If you have a show car, or are doing a body off restoration, real plating is definitely the way to go. There is no suitable substitute in such a case. Find a plating service in your area, or perhaps you can make a deal with Jason, while he still has items on hand.
