    Hi Yerigh and Clam71,
    I wish I had something of value to add here but my attempt at doing my own plating was a total failure. There appears to be much more to it than what would be expected. I used a company in Los Angeles that did beautiful work. I would often send them really messed up cases which they would return looking like new. Also for worn rolled gold cases they would add gold to the worn areas to build it back up (like bondo in an auto-body shop) and then finish everything off I guess by plating and buffing. They also did rodium, nickel as well as all types of gold plating. I don’t remember the name of the company as its been quite a few years since I used them. I’ll see if I can come up with the name somewhere and will post it here. This isn’t meant to discourage you from trying…just letting you know that I couldn’t seem to get the hang of it.
    I’m sure there are others up here with much more electroplating experience who can explain the process in detail.
