How would I go about making my chrome shell hardware (lugs and hoops, not stands) gold or goldish in color, in a way that I can do it myself?

Thanks

There are gold plating kits out there, I dont know how well they work, but you basically just take all of the lugs off, let them soak in a liquid for a while, take them out and they are gold. I dont know of any product names, but you can probably get it at a hardware store.

Most of those home plating kits wot work all that well particulary on items already plated. Yoru best bet would be to buy gold hardware from www.drummaker.com (for example) or bring your hardware to a plating shop and have it professionaly done.
