Hey Folks,

Had no luck searching the forum so I have to ask a likely redundant question:
On a 59 Chevy front bumper, how is the center portion (where a license plate would go) to be finished? Mine is rusted to hell but appears as if it had never been chrome plated. Is this supposed to be painted? Body color? Other?

Thanks.

If I understand your question correctly the lower valance should be body color.

The valances are body color but the center section is painted silver.

Mine was rusty and painted black. I detailed it up and painted it body color...looks nice, especially with no plate on it.
