I am looking for a forum, where Old Guys that do not have buckets full of cash, work on their own cars, just for the love of it.

Chrome was so bad on my 52 grille, that I painted it with Duplicolor rattle can Chrome, went to Cleora, OK. picking parts and found a not bad 51 grille. Thinking about using it. What would you do?

Wow, they look very close in the photo, not sure which I would use. Suggest leave as is and see how paint job holds up, then replace if necessary.

I'm with one4dad. The painted grill looks pretty good from the pics so I'd see how the paint held up before switching.

But I'd definitely keep that grill. Hard to get decent ones these days!

Hard to tell the difference in the photos. I've used rattle can chrome on small parts under the hood that aren't exposed to the sun, bugs, and washing, seems to hold up well to engine heat.

My neighbor is putting a V8 in his 85- 1/2 ton, and asked me-if I knew anyone that would give him a Hundred bucks for the 4.3, it's got 48546 miles on it. I decided to bring it home.

You need at least Three projects, going at the same time, so it looks like you know what you are doing.
