Plating on titanium of any shape is not simple. If you do not have hands on experience in this specific area, you probably should not be a consultant for this job.James Watts

It's very difficult to plate on titanium, because titanium will immediately oxidize in the air. I will recommend you to read follow from the literature and try to understand the problem whit it. Maybe we can take a discuss after that. ASTM B 481-68, M:Thoma Plating on titanium Alloys 850716.
