After checking with Prismatic Powders there are so many color combinations now with clears and candy colors that chroming isn't  in the program now.

Been taking a break for a while but decided I had better get this one gone pretty quick so I decided to finish the grill insert.  Got about on third of it together today.

Its not that difficult if you know what you are doing.

That is the key.  You obviously know what you are doing.  Great work!

Decided to try the plating system that Eastwood sells to plate the misc. small parts and pieces that don't really need to be chromed since they don't show.  So far have done the rear 4 bar adjusters motor mounts and alternator mounts and I was very impressed.  Well worth the $69 and it looks like the anode will last for quite a while.  Has a satin stainless like finish and this was on bare steel not polished.

Going back together ok.  Changed the rear gears today so that shot most of the day resetting the backlash and getting the pattern right.  Was worried that the 3.70 gears would be a little noisy but in a roadster who can hear them anyways.

 Actually you hear everything in a roadster , it's those coupes with the roll up windows that hide the noise . That's going together nice .
