"Nickel Plating/ Stress relief"



1999

I'm currently restoring a 60's racing car and many parts will be nickel plated. In particular, a couple of suspension components and naturally I'm concerned about hydrogen embrittlement. Whilst the steel is not that hard (around 30-32 Rockwell) I'm keen to know what is required for proper stress relief of nickel plated parts.

Is there another method that gives the same "look" without the dangers of embrittlement?

Most people do not consider it necessary to bake after nickel plate on that low a Rc. If you feel that you want to bake, the standard is 375 F for 3 or 4 hours. Getting it into the bake cycle as soon as possible after plate is very helpful.
