type 1 headlight reflectors
happyoldhippy - July 13th, 2022 at 05:37 PM

has anyone had their headlight reflectors re-silvered lately? I had them done for my beetle nearly 30 years ago, but could do with a new touch... (Sydney area or NSW central coast)
any tips for this would be greatly appreciated

apologies for using my own emojis (which are obviously not compatible..)

They may have a new process or know of a place that does this
as the silver plating tends to tarnish over time

Did you try this place ????

Years ago, I had some reflectors rhodium plated. It was better than silver plating.

Ask the platers for advice...
