Does anyone have a suggestion on who to use to zinc plate old bolts for a restoration?

How much should I plan to spend for a bikes worth of nuts and bolts?

How much prep work are you doing in advance other than cleaning? Are you sandblasting before sending them out?

Thanks for your input!!

Mark check out the vintage resources thread. There is chatter about bolt plating in North Providence RI.

If it was me, my North Providence connection shut down and moved to Cranston. Still will do this stuff, DiFruscia Industries. If just white zinc probably $100 for a bikes worth. Spend some time wire wheeling before giving it to them, you will get a better finish.
Ride On.
