    i'm guessing it has been anodized, a friend of mine has a small version for nuts etc - rides motocross and makes a bit of money on the side but that cover is just WOW!

    i vinyle wrapped my d series one years ago in a smarties style vinyle. it works as the engine block only reaches the high temps as thats where the 4 stroke cycle happens, the rocker cover doesnt get as hot as the block and the exhaust system, remember hot air rises that where ur rocker seems so hot. proberly someone gonna tell me different now. lol x

    I think these are pimp, i would be interested to see what happens to the vinyl. Surely the heat would shrink it, or if you lacuqer over it would that help prevent it

    im still not sure, it looks like its been heat treated in a way, its a bit too chrome for flip paint ?? unless you can get chrome flip paint??

    someone mentioned electroplating?
     
  15. daz-civic Club Veteran ★ ★ ★ ★ ★


    electroplating doesnt involve a laser tho, with a bit of patience and research you can quite easily do electroplating at home diy but you couldn't do whatever this guy did unless you have a laser to hand

    i think electroplating comes out with a finish similar to chrome

    chrome plating and electroplating are the same thing they just get plated in different metals such as copper, gold ,silver etc IIR everything first has to be plated in copper then plated a 2nd time with gold silver etc


    did none of you people do electrolosis in school

    all electroplating does is put a thin layer of metal onto another metal....
