If it were true stainless it wouldn't have rusted!
But hey, the true reason I'm doing this is that in the winter here in Washington, cars kick up quite a bit of crud and I wanted to take off the good chrome and polish it up at my leisure but still wanted a decent looking truck as the cops around here would pull me over just cause they thought it was a hunk of junk with missing pieces and all...
wow! was that a run-on sentance!
Chrome for good weather and Painted is for winter! Sounds simple huh?
You are right, sir. Prompted by your response I dug through my spares and pulled the worse one out. I had thought that it was just rust stain from the nearby metal work, but on close inspection, I see the pitting.
Looks good to me! I was gonna have mine sandblasted & powdercoated when/if I ever got ahold of a set in better condition. I have since changed my mind & when I stop being lazy &/or have enough money to have it built, I want a billet phantom grille that will cover all 4 lights as well as take the place of the stock grille.
I've found there are different grades of stainless and the lower grades will rust, but dang those covers looked nice before and after. I'd like to have the bumpers on "lil-Dat" re-chromed but I'll stick with the black for a while. I will probably paint the grill to match until I can afford a re-chrome. 71-521, when you hit 521 posts you have to stop posting! I have to quit at 320 :dude:!!!!!
