Nickel for Your Thoughts?

Been doing a lot of "detailing" for things that I didn't completely address when I first made them.  For example, I finally determined where all the grease fittings were going to be to lube the rods and the type of zirks.  I ended up using the flush type zirks for appearance.  Once I finished prepping the rods and valve gear, I had them all nickel plated along with some other parts.  Here's some pictures...

And the valve gear.

 

Here's a picture of some of the bearings that came from all the rods and valve gear.
