      Re-chroming has gotten uber pricey. Have you seen any "powder coat chrome" ???

      I've seen some on headers and harleys that looked good - even the high temp stuff - it's not the same as chrome - but it's a cool look and less than half price according to some of the guys I asked about it.

              NICE WORK!

              I'm digging the details, I usually lose interest and start painting ;D It looks killer!

              I remember when new chrome was not that big of a deal. The gubernment has put most of the shops out of business........the ones I could afford anyway.


              Keep the pictures coming!

                  Sorry wish i could help with that emblem but no i have none, i smoothed up most of my trim but still left the things that i thought it needed like smoothed locks keep the handles etc.

                  I should have some pics tomorrow i worked on smoothing the bottom of the hood tonight.
                  Its mocked in looking good so far also just ordered my new Holeshots front wheels today they should be here next week.

                  There 15x4's rears are 15x15 and they weight only 14 pounds supe light weight love them. and they arent even on the car yet .
                  Cars so close to being in filler primer and when its all one color ill mount the wheels.

                  Heres the rears





                  Heres a few parts ive picked up lately!
