I have an aluminum radiator shell that I would like to nickel plate. It will need to have a couple of areas patched and deep pits and scratches filled first. The process that I have in mind is:

1 Patch the damaged areas using Techno-Weld.

2 Use Pit-Stop as a surface filler, like using body putty prior to painting a car body. Sand smooth such that only pits & scratches are filled.

3 Zincate & anode process nickel plating.

Will this method work?
