    If you are talking about the lock cylinder itself the cap is stainless steel and can be polished, don't try to take if off the lock cylinder. It's easier to polish it all togther anyway.

      If it's stainless, I know a guy who can really make it look new.

        I have never known an Avanti with key hole covers. To avoid "flash" in the chrome, best to remove the handle from the base and associated parts.

          You need to remove the lock cylinder before plating.

            Yes it needs to be disassembled (the entire handle/base unit) before plating. The lock cylinder also is removeable without a lot of work. If you have a repair manual, it will help some. Be patient and it can be done by yourself. B.V.
