The Bling Is Dead, Long Live The Bling

Got the first batch of plating back today, here's a quick look at a few of the bits. As I keep crowing on about the restorers thing, the parts have been electroless (dull) nickel plated. This does not have the eye candy appeal of regular chrome, although, in my opinion, it has a more solid engineering look to it and more in keeping with the period. Rare stuff in post-war Britain, that chromium stuff ya know.
