At this point we have spent less than 1 minute setting up to plate this emblem.  The tape that holds the drain apron up is reusable.  When an emblem is finished, the tape is carefully pulled off and laid in the drain pan with the adhesive side up.  This way, the tape will last for 3 or 4 cars before it needs to be changed out.  The color coded  application handles hang directly above their solution beakers.  The plating technician only needs to grab the right color for the step, everything else is automatic.
