Hi guys. I have a problem. All hardware items (corners, glides, etc.) of my Mark 2 Stage piano are rusty. I got rid of the rust with a kind of steel brush, but they look dull or matt now. I liked the hardware to be shiny again. I know that Speakeasy Vintage Music sells a Hardware Kit to replace old and rusty hardware, but maybe you come with some other ideas.  They need Nickel or chrome.
Any ideas.
Thanks in advance

Hi :-)
I use hard ware for case-building to replace rusty parts. Most locks an corners are direct replaceable with those.

I recommend Adam Hall od Musik Produktiv to buy those things.

THX a lot, Jenzz. Once again you have been very helpfull. Last night I reinstalled all hardware on the roads and it doesn't look too bad. I will stay with the dull hardware for a while knowing where to buy spare parts in Germany.
Take care 8)
