Nickel and zinc plating

I have recently decided to sell my vintage skateboard collection so i have been furiously brown vinegar-ing and ranex-ing parts that need re-plating such as the grommet washers and axle hangers for the chicago, bahne, sure grip, kalok, and some other brand 70's skatie parts. i have a lot of new old stock parts with some bits missing or badly oxidised and need to replace or refurbish. I know this is not bicycle related but im sure someone has had some experience with getting some bike parts plated in Nickel and/or Zinc. Im after someone in Sydney that can do it, ive got someone in Taren Point who does the chrome plating for me but wont do Zinc. Has anyone had stuff done in Sydney with good results??? cheers

Haven't used them for bike parts but they did a good job for some parts for my little British car. Getting your parts done all at the same time will save you some money
