Default **hardware restoration services**

**HARDWARE RESTORATION SERVICES**

At least a few times a week, I am asked if I offer a restoration service for original car hardware. It only makes sense to want to preserve your car's original pieces. I am going to start providing a service to restore original hardware. The following is a description of the restoration process:

1. Inspect and document your order once received.
2. Chemically strip each piece to remove grease, paint and rust
3. Mechanically clean each piece to ensure a smooth surface to receive plating
4. Inspect each piece and deburr any knicks / rounded corners
5. Tap all threads
6. Do a final inspection to make sure each piece is usable
7. Replace or supplement bad/missing items from our extensive inventory of original hardware (at an additional cost per piece)
8. Sort pieces according to plating specifications (Black phosphate, silver/clear or dichromate (yellow))
9. Personally deliver and pick up order from plater. (Once an order comes in it never leaves our possession except for the time it's at the plater.)
10. Return ship the order.

Here's a break down of pricing.
1. Each finish has a lot charge of $120.
* So for example if you need both black and clear (silver) it would be $240.
* Larger items that don't fit into the baskets for plating are a separate lot charge (such as jack mast and window regulators)
2. Restoration labor is charged @ $50 per hour.
* Total hours will vary on quantity and condition of hardware received.
From my past experience in restoring hardware, time runs between 10-15 hours for typical condition hardware.
3. Transportation time is charged at $25 per hour and will be $100 per order.
4. Our labor turnaround is 2-3 days and the plater's turnaround is 7-10 days. So total time turnaround is 2-3 weeks after hardware is received.
5. A deposit of $500 is required at the onset, and once the order is ready to ship the balance will be due.
6. You pay actual shipping and insurance costs.
* Typically a complete cars hardware can be shipped in a large flat rate USPS box which is $20.

**As a side note if you restore your own Hardware there will be no restoration fee just a handling/inspection fee.

If you have any questions feel free to call or text or email.

This is a great idea Rich. Wish you had an I.D. service I have about 100 GM bolts that I know were used on something somewhere, with correct head-markings, that I have no clue of their actual use. Best of luck with your new endeavour

Des, Thank you very much for the kind words. We already are going to be doing the hardware for a 68 Z28 and some hardware for a 70 Z28. Great response so far.

As far as the bolts that you have that you're not sure of naybe put a post in the technical section and if there's ones that I don't know maybe other people can chime in and help you ID them. It might be helpful for a lot of people to be able to see things like that. I'd be glad to help out.

Here's a few pictures of a Jack mast and spare tire J-hook and wing nut we did for a fellow SYC Member recently.

Here are a couple of pictures of the lengths we go to in trying to save as much original hardware for each order we have.
This is a lug nut that had its edges rounded.

And here is the same lug nut after we addressed it.
We do the same on all good salvageable hardware.
