reccomend a plater in the uk

i want to plate my qd rear axel, stub axel, nuts, adjusters etc.

that i want to just clean up the parts and plat them, i don't want
a mirror chrome finish, but something like cadmium plate.

I have used SilvaBronze in Alton.

Not the cheapest but helpful and even did it quicker than promised.

They done all the zinc plate on my TR6 and they do dull oiled and bright - also they do the new parts for Tri-Cor England

Cheap quick and excellent people to deal with - will do just one part or multi parts

If it ain't broke - don't fix it
