Default New looks mods.

Well, I finally got pics of my newest mods (which I did on Wednesday).

Chromed the grille, removed the front license plate and bracket, put clear 3057 bulbs in place of the amber colored bulbs, and painted the rear brake drums chrome/silver. I also claybarred it but did a quick job so it didn't turn out so well. Will take pics of it in the sun when it'* dry and clean this coming week.


New look from the front.


Painted brake drums.



Side shots.

Sorry, just realized I hadn't posted the pic of the new front, but rather one of the side.
Fixed that now.

Did you buy new drums or paint the old?.. If you used the old how did you clean them up?

Just painted them. I cleaned them with a wire brush and wiped them down with lacquer thinner and water. I am sure I will have to paint them again soon. Will probably put some high temp clear coat on top too.
