Re: easier way to polish nickel headlamps/shell

You have to be careful polishing nickel as it is softer than chrome.
Too much polishing removes material
I use wenol on chrome and whatever little nickel I run into
I'm almost all 30-31

Re: Need key for Cabriolet

Being a cabriolet is irrelevant
It will take a locksmith knowledgeable with early Ford. Unfortunately those have become scarce

Re: window regulators.
