Funny how your views change with the passing of time. Been looking to get one or two bits brass plated to tie in with other bits on the A7, found out that it's not very straightforward, nobody really does it any more, not 'round these parts anyway. The bloke who does the polishing said that he could get it done, so the Batesalike rim was given over for brass plating. Picked it up yesterday, looks OK but it's gold plated and not brass! Strange that, I've known people polishing up brass and claiming it to be gold, now it's hoped that gold will look like brass.
