To Plate or Not To Plate

Anyone have opinions on replating cases?

I am considering setting up a small plating station to replate mostly yellow cases.

I have never had a case replated Jim - I do not have an opinion.

I've had a couple of chrome cases replated, but never a gold one.

I currently have a white gold case that could use some plating work. I occasionally get a yellow gold case that has too much wear.

Let us know how it goes if you do some.  Would love to see photos of before and after.

I have a 1970 chrome case done a few months back. Didn't cost much $20 and came out looking brand new. I want to try a gold plate case next to see how it goes fixing wear points.
