Hi guys. I decided to contuniue relicing my SG. How can I relic the hardware without using that special chemical? Is there a way I can do it at home easily?
This hasn't worked on chrome parts for me. Hydrochloric acid for that.Yes....if fact you can do it now I would bet!
Use a large tupperware container with a lid. Put an inch of white vinegar in it. Place the hardware in a bowl and place bowl in container and put the lid on. Check in every two or thee hours until it looks about how your want it to look. You will need to clean the parts a little...wipe them off good. I use a little gun oil afterwards and wipe them off. What happens is the acidic fumes does its magic!
Use vinegar on nickel plated hardware, Chrome is extremely difficult to aged properly without the aid of chemicals.Hi guys. I decided to contuniue relicing my SG. How can I relic the hardware without using that special chemical? Is there a way I can do it at home easily?
relicing chrome and poly usually ends up terrible.
Chrome simply takes much longer to 'age' than nickel. Most Gibson guitar parts plated with chrome have durable, thick layers of protection for years of 'like new' appearance.Chrome? Not going to happen. Eventually, chrome will pit but l've never seen a fast way to replicate it. Nickel? I use diluted etchant solution.
