Hello all!

I own a '40 Lincoln-Zephyr Continental Cabriolet and we're TRYING to figure out the best way to restore the interior hardware's gold (macoid) trim.

I came across this post:http://forums.aaca.org/f128/gold-macoid-substitute-maybe-309784.html ...but was wondering if you all had any "other insights".

The best way is to have it actually gold plated, but of course that can be expensive.  And you also have to be very careful with actual gold as it will rub off with the wrong kind of polishing!  Get some estimates from different plate companies as they is the preferred method rather than trying to recreate the macoid paint process.
