After about 16 hours the part seemed to have a good coating
of nickel, allthough it looked dull instead of shiny. During
the plating process I checked the temperature of the solution
a few tomes and it was only 21 degrees. Recommended temp is
between 20 and 50 degrees (C) so obviously the little 50 Watt
heater that came with the kit was not strong enough. In the
2 pics above the higher hubcover is the one that has been nickleplated,
in the first picture you can see the dull finish as it came
out of the tank, in the second pic the part has been given a
quick polishing. Hmmmm, not bad actually!
I mounted the part on the nickle plated front wheel and the
colour matched the rest perfectly!
