    Had to get the radiator power coated as the paint on it was starting to peel off, I forgot to take the Chrome valve parts that screws into the radiator off, I just got it back and and the guy powder coated everything, I tried to remove the powder coating with paint stripper but it have taken all the chrome finishing off so can I buy the replacement part that screws into the radiator or will I have to buy two new valves? {This valve part should be chrome not white.} IMG_20200711_142719.jpg

    Yes you can buy them . " Radiator valve tails" one pictured is 1/2 inch BSP to 15 mm. Be aware that other sizes / types are available . Are all yours the same as pictured ?
    They are around 7 quid for a pair on amazon

    There are only two tails, the bit on the tail that goes into the valve the non thread side one is about 4mm longer that the other one, not sure if this is normal or when it was originally fitted the plumber cut it.

    They are slightly adjustable, or not pushed fully home when fitting, sounds like you just need two the same.

    It's just the position that the nut clamps the olive onto the unthreaded part.
