looks like a good finish, nothing better than fresh zinc
you need to wire the light bar link to the light bar before plating as the bushes are not conductive....
 
make sure to seal the fuel regulator/damper really well before plating otherwise...it will look perfect but 2 weeks later it will be  covered in rust

Andy, just buy a new header tank from Porsche, they aren't expensive , think mine was £80, and you can swap them on an S2 without losing the fluid.
