Welcome to the month end poll for the RBotM April 2019 - Theme month - Your favourite lugs!!!
and who doesn't love a good lug?
Some very special looking lugs in the mix this month and while maybe down a bit on the quantity I expected, we are well enriched with quality, that's for sure. Very tough decisions to be made.
Thanks to all who entered and best of luck to all.

Usual rules apply, one vote per member, poll runs for 5 days with results hidden until the end. More details in the WIKI section if needed.

And the gold plating looks the nuts..... and I think I have something that might just work on..... :wink:

Electroplating theory (along with the right chemicals) suggested that it was possible to remove the chrome whilst leaving the underlying nickel plating untouched. So I gently removed the clear coat overlay, masked and effectively disolved the chrome plate, repolished the underlying nickel plate and gold 'brush' plated the lugs. A quick hand sealing metal polish, remove the masking and the job was done. So yes, that is still the factory original paint. I'm pretty happy with my handiwork.


Hey Cap, any chance of a short "how to" thread?

Yes indeed, many congratulations to Spokesmann on a close fought victory with his very beautifully lugged Carlton Capella from 1963. Ageless beauty!

All very worthy contenders this month and so another big thanks for all who entered.
A big thank you to those who voted, commented and joined in the banter also.

Well done once again for Spokesmann and the lovely Capella.

Jamie
