Wiring is looking very neat. And any progress is good progress.

Think that I would be putting an old plug in the head, I'm always scared of dropping something down into the barrel.

Cheers

Its a nickel plating process as opposed the the electronic versions with an anode, this one you have a solution that you immerse the nut, bolt, bracket into and the nickel attaches to the metal. dont know if its better or worse just thought it was easier.

nuts bolts etc..come out pretty well depending how clean they were going in.

here's a photo of the bottom of the recovered seat. the mounting brackets were rusty and tarnished... hit them with a wire brush and boiled them and viola...
