Pulled out the Jane's Zinc plating kit and fired it up; a big success.

I'm still waiting on my old collection of GKN bolts to return to me, and in the meantime I hate putting rusty bolts back in.  So after a quick clean with the wire wheel on the grinder I popped some into the plating solution; 5 mins hey presto!

They looked so good I replated the pedal blanking plate too.


So far I have got the pedal box assembled and ready to install.  I put the steering column cover in first as access is rather tight.  It is a repro from SC Parts.  It is a really crappy plastic copy of the original, for which they charged me about $100.  Needless to say I won't ever buy anything from them again.
