        Hi John,
        Don't know where you are but, there's a chance you have a local
        plater. I've never had a pendulum plated. I did however, have a base,
        mainframe and damper assembly replated from an old model Blue Racer. I
        did so because the parts were peeling (I got a good deal on it). It
        cost me $30, mainly because that was his minimum. WR Smith in his book
        recommends against taking tiny parts (screws, etc.)to a plater. The
        kit for really small parts is probably a good idea. You could take the
        lever, base, mainframe, damper and, possibly the pendulum to a plater.
        You will be amazed at how bad your screws and small pieces like the
        circit closer and the dot spring etc look after the major pieces have
        bright new clothes:-). You are about to embark on a journey of many
        destinations...hi hi....good luck. Hope you take "before" pics so we
        can be suitably impressed when the whole job is done. By the way, what
        kind of bug is it?
        73, Milt

          I don't have anything really great, just a Lightning from WWII era. I
          had just seen some old bugs that were restored (Smith's website) and
          wondered about the possibility if I get something really nice. I keep
          watching for old bugs on ebay like everyone else. 73's
