Well....that's interesting.
« on: February 20, 2016, 03:43:03 PM »
So I've been stripping paint, doing bodywork and shooting epoxy primer on my V8 car.  Today was the day I had planned to deal with the cowl which had already been replaced when I got the car and is held on by 2 sheetmetal screws.  Paint stripper blistered the paint off quickly and easily to reveal.....chr ome.  I sh*t thee not, tiny mortals.....so mebody chromed the cowl on this car.  Anybody ever seen that before?

Nope.  Definitely chrome.  Really cheap, badly done, peeling-off chrome. Not chrome done right...not copper, then nickel, then chrome bath.  More like "Hey, here's $20....dip this in the chrome bath for me."
