Zippo lighter restoration Harley Davidson AWESOME Gold plated 24 carat edition with amazing outcome!
This Zippo lighter is not very old. One of my fans here on BRdown sent it to me from US. He wrote that he lost it at a Bike festival a few years back and that he found it two years later at the same camp where he uses to have his tent. I think that he is going to be very surprised when he sees this restoration video.
I always start with WD40 rust remover. Just to be safe. This zippo lighter inner case was stuck in the zippo bottom case. I had a really hard time separate those two parts from each other. I chosed to sandblast the metal emblem and used my Dremel 3000 mini drill to polish the lighter inner and outer case. After I have cleaned the parts I electroplated the Harley Davidson metal emblem with nickel to make the metal susceptible for the gold plating. I plated emblem with 24 carat of gold many times to achieve a beautiful thick layer of gold.
