HI ERROL:

PLATING ON ALUMINIUM IS NOT EASY, NOT FOR HOBBYISTS. IF YOU ARE A BRUSH PLATER GET ADVISE FROM YOUR SUPPLIER OF CHEMICALS. IF THE GEOMETRY OF THE PART IS SIMPLE AND CAN BE COVERED MOST OF THE TIME WITH THE BRUSH, YOU MIGHT SUCCEED, BUT IT WILL NOT LOOK LIKE ORIGINAL HEX CHROME. IT WILL BE DULLER AND YELLOWISH. IF YOU DON'T SUCCEED TAKE THE PART TO A SMALL SHOP THAT DOES ELECTROLESS NICKEL. IT'S FAR SIMPLER FOR THEM.

-dÈgraissage Èlectrolytique
- dÈcapage en polariÈs inverses - (l'Al deviennt gris noir)
-dÈcapage polarites normales + ( l'al revientcouleurd'origine)
- sous couche de nickel 3ý5µm +
