    So, I found a local plater in my area and asked him if he could plate my Passport stainless steel frame. First he does nickel then gold. I had to first take the Passport totally apart which I know how to do and I have all the tools. So two days later here is the wonderful result Gold Plated Passport-gold-pp.jpg

    Did he also change the KB backlight collor from white to blue? Or is this because of the light?

    The background is actually black. The guy who plated it had nothing but the stainless steel frame to work with

    Looks amazing.
    I would like to ask how much that you had to pay, but that's a bit strange isn't it?

    Would love to have this on my upcoming classic/passport

    NO PAINT. I took it apart and had it plated, then put it back together.
