if you want to... i could make you a 24k or even a rhodium plated abu. . . . . . . .
its not hard at all.. since alot of abu frames/sideplates are brass or brass alloy.. . . . .

I was looking for on Google for about 15 minutes, and can't find it. Tried searching for a lot of different things. I remember seeing a pic of it. Wish I had saved it.

im serious.. i can do it for you.
but i cant be positive on a price. yet.
plating an entire reel.. thats alot of surface area. more area = more $

price would definitely be understand that 3g mark.

but itd take me a while though, stripping chrome/paint/anodized stuff isnt exactly a one day deal.

would be really like if its possible to plate straight onto chrome.. save the time to strip. never tried it before.
ill try tomorrow though.. i recently cut off the top bars on a few abu CS frames.. they are chromed brass.

lol i totally forgot about plating the chrome bars i have here today.
i was laughing all day about how gold hit 1000$ an ounce.
and still saw so many people buying gold. made me wonder if they had an idea whats going on in the markets at the moment.

i did examine the bars i had. looks like abu like to copper plate the brass before hard chroming it.
