Simple Copper Electroplating of a Motorcycle Gas Tank
Laura Kampf is rebuilding her Yamaha DT 175 motorcycle. Her first project in the build was to copper-plate her gas tank.
She did research on electroplating and found a method that she could do in the shop using simple tools. She is thrilled with the results. You have to watch to find out what she discovered as an electroplating secret weapon.
