Could anyone perhaps help me please. I am after a copy of an article on Auburn and replating an auburn speedster windscreen frame written by Rudi Vanden Berg of the then Rhodesia, I am told it was published in an ACD newsletter in 1970.

Thanks in Advance

Dear Wayne Kennerly

I have all the newsletters, 1953-present. I recall the item you're looking
for but have't been able to locate it. The First article talked about his Auburn and locating it and then another discussed the plating.

We restore many cars with chrome windshield frames. We always have them stripped of any chrome and then examine the metal. We repair any cracks, holes and large pits with the appropriate metal compatable with the base metal. We send it to the plating shop for a heavy coat of acid copper, several thousands thick. We get it back to the shop and file or sand it smooth. We send it back for another layer of copper that the plater should be able to buff out smooth, then go to nickel and chrome. We always try to use a shop that does hexavalent chrome work--not trivalont or the air nickel process.
