Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2016: Received some shiny steering pieces....

The UPS guy delivered.

Freshly nickel plated steering gear housings and caps. Yippee.

Had used Spacecoast awhile ago, and sure enough the quality and speed is still great. Mailed these off on Sept 15, and got them today.





Here is the before pic of the parts sent. Both sets are for 4:1 gears.




Nice job, with 1% hazard waste fee, 5% copper/nickel surcharge, 6.5% FL sales tax and $22 UPS delivery, cost was $125 a set.

Paid for quality and got it :-)

Wow, That seems like a pretty fair price for the work done. Is the yellow tint just the lighting?

Just lighting, the reflections of the nickel surface pickup the sand color walls in my Man Cave :-)



Re-shoot, under cover with flash :-)

That does look nice. Well worth it. I'm so used to looking at the 90 year old look I never thought much about those being shiny nickel.

WOW, they looked good in the first pics, but that pic just POPS! Looks like they filled all the pits on the lid neck, and the knurling looks great too.

Boy they sure did a great job. I live on the West Coast, but if I needed some quality plating done I wouldn't hesitate sending them the pieces that's for sure.

Those turned out great. Do you know if they do brass or gold?

Website states copper, nickel, and chrome only. But they will polish brass for you if it is solid brass. That is it.

They look very nice!

As easy as it is to get these parts nickel plated, I don't understand why so many are painted black or silver, along with the throttle and spark rods. I have seen some very nice cars that have been restored to a very high level, but these parts were missed for whatever reason. (Says the guy with the '25 "beater" coupe with dull paint and grease and oil all over the under side :-) ), but my steering gear case and levers are plated. Dave

Very nice, Dan! :-)

Nice looking Dan. If they look like that a year from now, you will know you got a good job! I had mine done over 5 years ago, and all I have to do is wipe them with a cotton cloth a couple of times per year, and that's it. No polishes!
