1963 T-bird promo restoration

Post by chromecop on Tue 04 Mar 2014, 8:09 am

I'm not only building on my 62 Chrysler right now but also restore an old T-bird promo which I bought abot 20 years ago.

I have sanded off some of the emblems and I've dropped it in the front + put on modern Wheels.

The grille/bumpers have been rechromed using Spazstix Mirror Chrome Aerosol-spray, topped with their special clearcoat and on top of that furniture polish!!!! Doesn't look that bad....

Started to prepair the body for paint. Lot of dents in the plastic to be fixed and I had to repair the left rear fin. Got a "semimodern" custom steeringwheel from my parts stash.
