Tinning liquid is used for electroless tin plate. THere is a comparable copper electroless process.

Original screens are tinplated mild steel and were stamped and folded from pre-plated sheet stock.

Plating isn't difficult unless you want chrome. The difficult part will be de-rusting and preparing. You can silver plate using spent photo darkroom chemicals as the raw materials.
