Does anyone know if it is possible to electroplate an X-metal frame with gold or platinum?
Yep, it's been done in gold. There's a dude on FB who had one of each of his x-metals done, they look pretty sweet.
Cool. I was wondering if titanium could be plated because I have an uncle who can do gold plating.
Post pics if you get it done!
Sweet! I'd be interested in that for the right price.
Don't know whether to do original 24k or new 24k though. New might be too expensive.
If original 24K can be done, I need my 24K XX needs touching up!
I doubt it would look the same. From the pics I've seen, original doesn't look shiny like the new. It would come out shiny like the new one because it would use actual gold. Idk what they used at Oakley.
Would be interesting to see one done.~
I guess it'll be a tedious work of stripping the coat off before plating
Check out Dr.FLGD's collection. He has a lot of gold and silver plated glasses.
