April 11, 2005Thanks guys for the help, this is on my first to do list once I get some free time on the weekend!
April 12, 2005haha all this talk of valances. I wanted to get rid of mine on my 93, instead of taking my time with those clips i used a tool called aggresion and a hack saw..lol
I agree with the step by step thing. But ive heard that krylon fusion is awesome. Just a word of advice, try to think of what you will think of it a couple months down the road. you might not like it completely whited out, but maybe you will.
April 22, 2005I have done many chrome bumpers and chrome grills for other members no so much from this site but others.
For chrome bumpers the easiest way is to have it sandblasted but you can also grind the surface with an electric grinder using a 16 grit grinding disk. Deface the surface leaving no shinny spots, use "SEMS" metal etching primer and spray enough to cover letting dry 2-5 minutes between coats. Follow by a good pro automotive primer, either lacquer or epoxy primer using a hardener. Spray a check coat (Fogged on black spray can paint coat) Sand with 400 grit wet/dry sandpaper using water at all times. Paint as usual.
For the grills use 150 grit either by DA (Dual Action) sander or by hand or both and follow the same procedure with the "SEMS" metal etching primer ect...ect....ect....
