Re: radiator paint

Yup Tom's got it right. I use to teach Rad repairs and in the day we would use chassis black because it was thin and dull which is suppose to give up heat better than gloss.

Re: Cos of A Restoration

Re: Australian barners should read this

May be worth buying from Canada. There a a few good parts suppliers here. Takes about the same time as getting things from the states. And they have Canadian parts. So a win/win. JP

Picture of wires on Terminal block

Does anyone have a good picture of the way the wires go onto the terminal block bolts. Is there a nut at the base? My wires are quite tightly packed and I still can't get the cover on.

Re: Nickel plating

You could also try Cambridge Chrome in Cambridge Ont. Or the Plating House in Toronto. Cambridge does nice plating, Plating House does amazing plating, the costs reflect what your getting.

Re: Stainless buffing question

Looks like your pulling up the surface of the Stainless. I'd try finishing finer with the sandpaper and then white compound going lite with the pressure.
