Keeping the throttle linkage shiny


Country flag
Hi guys - cleaning up the HS6 conversion bits from Marv (thanks Marv!) and got the throttle linkage shiny again, but how to keep them shiny? What say you?

I put all mine in a box and got them cleaned and zinc plated at J&E Specialty, 519 Central Avenue, Dover, NH 03820-3420, (603) 742-6357.

As I recall it was $40 a year or so ago. (I had it done with some chrome) I believe the Factory plated some stuff with zinc and other stuff with cadmium. Some of it was unfinished too, as far as I can tell.
