|This 5 window
is going to have plenty of chrome! Here's a few shots of some of
the parts we've had done. All of the work has been done by John
Wright's Custom Chrome Plating out of Grafton Ohio. His work is
second to none. When you see it in person, you'll be impressed.
Here's the SoCal drums (front and rear) along with backing plates and
scoops. An ugly job to do, and they turned out great.
The front wishbones and rear radius rods were
also done. Adding the slots just made things a little more difficult
for the platers, but they came through. There's no waves, and all of
the common pitting associated with the factory weld seem that ran the
length of the tubes has been filled. They are really nice.
Although not the best picture, these are the
rear backing plates. All of the nooks and crannys are flawless.
We had the garnish moldings done also.
These are the quarter windows. These can be real difficult due to the
entire piece not having a flat area (what appears to be flat areas between
the curves are actually dished). These turned out gorgeous.
Here's the door garnish moldings. These
can also be real difficult to get polished real nice and also get the
chrome to "throw" into the tight areas. No problems with
that on these.
The corners can be especially difficult to
get polished without waves and to get the chrome in the tightest of areas.
John's got these areas perfected, as the polish work and chrome in the
corners is flawless.
