How to stop chrome chipping on filler mechanism of Parker 51 Aerometric?


Recommended Posts

Hello FPN, I'm working on restoring this 1949 Parker 51 Aerometric as a send-off gift for my sister's first year of law school. This one has some chipping on the Aerometric sac protector. Is there any way to stop it from chipping?

I don't expect to restore the original chrome finish, but I was hoping to just stop any further chipping while making it look like a professional job. 

Can I use clear nail polish? Resoline? 

Any ideas? Thanks! 779607220_Parker51Aerometric1949.thumb.jpg.6ea988b3055795a08455cf127278a4fe.jpg

It is nickel plated and most common is to strip off and replate the body.
