Be more than happy to help... Looks to be a quality build.
Hmmm... Do you have connectors? Shrink tube and wire shrouding? We might be in contact.

Does anyone on here have any experience with electroplating of bolts and whatnot?

I've been calling around and found a few places local in Arizona. One that I called, Collins Metal Finishing, has a $65 minimum charge for off-the-street jobs, but said that a bucket of bolts off a car would be no problem. He said that as long as they are free of paint and not terribly rusty, they would turn out great. If they are very rusty, he said they can acid wash the rust off.

Anyway, I was thinking about bringing them all the bolts off the suspension on the car and having them plate them. Most of the bolts on the underside of the car are crusty and torn up from my brief time in MI. Also, all the bolts that came with the stuff I've bought from other states are pretty bad. I've priced it out and its WAY cheaper than buying new bolts. Especially if I can work them down on price.

Examples:

Before:


After:



The other, cheaper alternative is to put them in a vibratory deburring/polishing bowl and let them run with some corn cob or walnut media. I think my grandfather has one of these machines I could use. They commonly use them for polishing bullet shells during the reloading process.

I have a fair amount of connectors, depends what you're looking for... if not I have easy sources (outside of Digikey,newark,etc..)

Lots of protective braided sleeving, and heatshrink (shrink tubing)

just got a sample of some really neat 3M stuff, thats 3:1 shrink ratio and adhesive backing (adhesive flows @ 80*C) in Red and Black...

Just let me know

Well, turns out KW is raising their prices as of tomorrow. I've heard estimates of 10% to 300-400 bucks for the v3's. So I pulled the trigger today ordered a set through Jay (Evil Imports). I think this is the most expensive item I have left to purchase.
