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.

Can't afford the volcanic island yet, but the plans for my monorail and the goons' uniforms are done
