I have worked with DW on some really cool finishes this past year. I just join this forum so I'm not sure how to post pictures or I would post some hardware from Jim Keltner's set I work on with DW..

The biggest advantage of this type of PVD Coatings is the Hardness and Wear, you can't scratch them even with steelwool or sandpaper. and the colors are un-limited,

If you have noticed all the Gold Slot Machines in Las Vegas, this is the same type finish, our company does all of them. It's also used in the Firearms and Cutlery Industry. The thickness of PVD is also only 1 to 3 Microns not thick like Powder Coating

Do you know of any places that could coat drum hardware with PVD? It seems like it's the best thing to get things coated with. I'm still in love with that Two-tone coat on the Yamaha.

Kilometers,

Send me contact information by PM and we can discuss what you want coated?

The company I work for has about 40 plants worldwide doing this process,

Nah, it would just be a nice thing to have done. I've got more essential things to spend my money on. Plus, my 1978 Acrolite's hardware has seen better days, and isn't worth coating. It's great that a company is doing it, it was out of curiosity that I asked, but thank you anyway.
