Humber Seat Adjusters
These seat parts are from a Humber we dismantled the entire assembly, then they are de-rusted, Chrome and Nickel stripped and hand-polished to a mirror finish, before re-plating. All internal components such as springs are Zinc plated for protection and then all the parts are assembled and tested
The Seat Adjusters Process
Once the material has been ground and smoothed it’s possible to polish the material to a mirror finish ready for plating. This is also important because you will only see through the plating what is on the surface below it. The plating will mirror the surface, so if you leave pits and grinding marks they will still be there after plating and in most cases look worse, because the plating will magnify every little imperfection.
