Universal Plater - Chrome Edition (Continental USA & Canada)Automotive Plating Kit
EFFECTIVE NOVEMBER 19, 2021 - During the winter months this product will be shipped in two different boxes. Due to the Chrome solution having to be shipped UPS ground we did not want to risk your gold gel solution freezing. If the gel freezes the solution will not work properly.
Universal Plater - Chrome Edition is a powerful and versatile system for those who want all of the features of the standard Universal Plater Kit, along with the added ability to gold plate onto chrome plated surfaces. The Universal Plater - Chrome Edition is an economical and equally powerful alternative to our flagship system, The Gold Star, our original professional automotive gold plating system.
This system allows the user to easily switch between Normal Plating and Chrome Stripping modes. The 10 ampere power supply will allow you to tackle virtually any project.
The user friendly design and color coded application handles make it simple to produce professional plating results onto virtually any conductive metal surface.
For gold plating onto Chrome Plated items, it really is as easy as:
1) - Strip existing chrome.
2) - Activate the underlying nickel.
3) - Apply a rich, beautiful layer of hardened 24K gold.

Aluminum - Bare aluminum cannot be plated onto with any of our kits. Aluminum requires a specialized under-plate process that is not suitable for consumer level plating operations. This process must be performed on an industrial level by trained professionals. We do not sell the process or provide support for plating onto unprepared aluminum surfaces. Any attempts to plate onto bare aluminum with our products will not work, please purchase with this in mind.
If you have a project that requires plating onto aluminum, you may consider sending the parts to Gold Plating Services to be plated by our technicians. We can provide the required nickel under-plate for a nominal charge. We can then gold plate, or chrome plate your item or return it with the nickel under-plate. After the aluminum has the proper nickel plate it can then be plated with the metal you desire using our Universal or Jewel Master Series kits.

Such a great experience
The packaging was thoughtful, and the steps were crystal clear. I did not need a single thing to get started and complete my project. What a wonderful experience thank you Gold Plating Services
I’m addicted to gold now!!!
I build lowrider show cars. Gold plating is growing in our competition cars. This is the first time I’ve ever used platting equipment. Let me say this was so easy to use after watching a few videos. I even did my door handles on the vehicle. Would of taken me longer to remove them from the door that I spent to plate them. Doesn’t effect the paint and came out very clean and shinny. I already have people asking me to plate their parts.
Quick and easy with beautiful results even on old pieces
So the very first piece I plated was a weathered 35 year old Cadillac hood ornament and wow besides the pits in the existing nickel the gold plating really brought this piece to LIFE!
Great I do a lot of metal polishing. The prep work is everything then the plating. The results are breath taking. The chrome especially. The real deal. The bath plating is next
I love the gold plater. I've been golding many parts on my 1970 impala. Also my Yamaha v star 650. I would 100% will be buying more solution soon.
