Re: Price of cars down, price of parts up

Re: chrome stripping?

sandblasting won't cut this stuff; tried a variety of substrates. 'Should add this chrome is on 36 3 window moldings so can't use too much pressure.

Re: Screwed on a pair of 36 front shocks

Made it clear that these were going on a properly restored 36 Ford car. Yes, these will bolt on and work. When I order Chicken wings, I prefer not to be served Pigeon wings.
