if it's mazak castings then if they are pitted I think that they are pretty much scrap. Pitting would need filling before any polishing and plating is done and I think that it's not a metal that could be welded satisfactorily? If it's steel or brass then yes they can be refurbished.

It was put into the re-chromers in a really bad state. To be fair, they did try to take out much of the pitting that was on it, but this was the best they could do and it ended up like this. Unless you've got only one or two marks that you can pass off as "patina", it really doesn't pay to try a rescue something that's badly corroded, no matter how keen the re-chromers are. And that mazak is a horrid "metal" Lens edge on, it doesn't look as bad. But bad it still is

Thanks a lot PPV for your insight. It is certainly helpful. My Mazak parts are fairly pitted, so I dare say they have to be replaced. But I will have an expert rechromer have his say first. That said, I will try and keep much of the old parts as I can for value's sake. Thank you for your interest.Hi Clive, for the outside then the mazak items are the door handles, rear number plate plinth, rear light plinths, Jaguar leaper and the boot lock I think. Mazak can be rechromed if not pitted and if the rechromer can polish out the imperfections. Otherwise all other items can be rechromed. Internally there are more mazak items. Talk to a good rechromer as each one has their own view on what they can and cannot do. Also make sure that the rechroming is the full job.
