Some assembly required...:-)

I picked these up yesterday morning. What a difference!

The photo does not do justice to the shine and polish of the

chrome.

The cliche..."you get what you pay for....is sooo true".

Spent the afternoon sealing the back-sides with aluminu/grey-colored

rust-proofing.

Here are some before and after pics.

I only dis-assembled the bumpers and dropped them off.

The rear center piece was in the roughest shape. Rust had perforated

through in 2-3 sections. And had 1 crease in it that was not original.

The plating shop did the repsirs, straightening and all the prep.

I went to a local plating shop in the Toronto area. Aside from

the stripping, repairs, polishing and prep, they did a 3-dip

process. It is a nickel-chrome finish.

Cost was ~$1000 USD. The price range was in the middle of the

road.

...also checked-out some of the rechroming outfits in the

States (for muscle cars). Those guys are really over the

deep-end...

cheers
