Awesome! Please more details on how/who plated your lights. When I used to live in Gold country (Sierra Foothills in Calif.) there was a guy who could plate anything and was reasonable too. I wish I still had his info although I think gold has about doubled in price since then. You've got some great lights there even if they didn't have the Midas touch!

CPF member Modamag arranges the coating services here ( http://www.cpfmarketplace.com/mp/showthread.php?p=2049111#post2049111 )
Earlier I sent the Mini D to be gold plated but I was told that it was made of special metal and the plating failed, so I told them to sand blast it first and still no go. I ended up sending it to Madamag and presto!

I have an electronic gold plating kit that is good for small pieces only, for example the watch bracelet.

I came in here with the intention of making a snide remark on how weak and cheesy gold lights looked :thumbsdow . But upon seeing the lights, I can do no such thing. Berry, berry classy looking, if I do say so myself :) .

tanasit, do you have one of the original 24k over brass AA Minimags? Or is that just a gold ano'd aluminum AA next to the FiveMega one? The gold plated brass ones were a limited edition release in the 80s and came in a plush velvety box.

I've got one of those original gold over brass. They are special. Look totally different from FM's gold plated minimags which are also nice.
