How does the horn look at present Eric?
Having done some home nickel plating I can tell you that if you want a mirror finish afterwards it needs to be a mirror finish before plating.
90% of the work is preparation and if it needs a lot that is a lot of labour to pay for.....

It's down to brass now not flaking off just straight brass.
