We spent about 6 minutes including set-up of the drain apron and drain pan.  The cost of goods for this emblem is around $2.00.   The going wholesale rate for plating an emblem varies from location to location but a good national average would range from $25 to $50 each.  If you consider the low side of $30 per emblem and a 5 emblem car takes you about 1/2 hour, that leaves a lot of room for overhead.  Gold plating is a very viable business for someone who is willing to apply themselves.
