Default Recommendation for brake components restoration

Who are you gurus using for restoring master cylinders, prop valve, dist block, etc.? Also, do they re-plate the lid? Thanks

I used Apple hydraulics in New York but they don't do the plating

I used Karps in California...{Jeff Watts} does a great job and will powdercoat the master

cylinder if so desired.

If you need you top replated then I used Brake Boosters by {Steve Gregori} in California...

I've used White Post and Karps. Nice work by both.

+1 on White Post with a quick turn around. Rebuild for proportioner is available and simple to do yourself.

Just used White Post. Actually Apple Hydraulics is in my town, but felt more comfortable after speaking with White Post. Turnaround was quick and results outstanding. BTW returned in 1 week from when they receives calipers and master. Oh the price was very reasonable.
