Stainless Steel, Chrome Plating, Powder Coating
We plate all types of steel. The final finish on a steel part is related to the age, condition and type of steel the part is made of. If the steel is old, rusted, pitted or deteriorated, it can be restored if there is enough metal left for us to work with.
Sometimes the actual condition of the part cannot be known until the part is stripped. We can repair holes, cracks and dents in steel parts. Cast iron parts are porous and extremely rough and may not polish out and plate to a mirror finish. You will be notified if your steel part is in a condition that will not result in a proper finish.
We have chrome plated all of our award winning automobiles and only use the finest process.
Frank Nicodemus Classics and Antiques can also powder coat your engine and suspension parts. Your parts are stripped, polished or blasted, iron phosphate coated, then powder paint is electrostatically applied and heat cured. Once your parts are cured, this process provides a hard durable finish which is highly resistant to chipping, peeling and scratching.
There are hundres of color choices available and one of our team experts will assist you in your choice. High gloss, semi gloss, flat, textured, wrinkle, translucent and fluorescent finishes are available.
