This weekend’s Adelaide Extreme Horsepower show is showcasing many great custom and restoration vehicles.  Among them a unique BMW Drag car said to be worth around $1 million.  Says The Advertiser newspaper, Saturday 30 Oct 2010, the many gold plated parts on this unique car have added much value to it.

A Class Metal Finishers is also present at the show, with a display stand to showcase to visitors some of the quality chrome plating and metal polishing work they can do.  A Class has restored the chrome parts on many of the cars on display at the show and although we can not claim responsibility for the gold on the BMW, certainly have added some precious gold plating to other vehicles.

Gold Plating can “Bling up” your Car and Motorcycle parts!
I once saw a Barbecue that had a gold plated lid!!  Now that’s extravagant, or so I thought, until one day while surfing the web I came across a pic of a car that was largely gold plated! Just goes to show – different people have different tastes and desires (as well as budgets!!).

We have been asked to gold plate some unusual things over the years. Common ones are baby shoes, golf balls or other sports memorabilia. It’s a bit tricky to gold plate non metal items but it can be done (and is becoming easier for A Class due to advancements we are making in our process R&D!).

When it comes to metal items there are not usually any problems other than whether you have a gold plating tank big enough (like for a car body??)

We are seeing more customers now looking to do something different for their car or bike.  Sometimes its gold wheels or gold plated door handles.  One guy had all the structural fittings in his engine bay plus all external handles and fittings gold plated. The car was a deep green colour and the gold looked spectacular against it!

A Class Metal Finishers Pty Ltd would be delighted to assist you make your gold plated dreams come true!
