MasterSeries silver. Perfect for backs of bumpers, rims or entire cars. Been using and selling it for 25 years. Three coats and no rust for 20 plus years. Very Happy

Yes, Tim at 401 Restos in Rhode Island would be a good choice. It wont be cheap but it will be flawless. Have seen many of his finished cars and there wont be any letdowns.

The best way to bend these pieces to the correct contour without kinking them is with a shrinker/stretcher. Have done many this way. Just have to find someone that will let you borrow one.

Nice diamond plate. Probably aluminum . Thats why the screws holding it in. Take a peek on the underside just over the trans to give you a pretty good picture of what was covered up.

If you apply the MasterSeries on days of high humidity and high dew points it will set up real quick. A little urethane reducer(10%) will make it thinner and easier to brush. I recommend 10 to 15% u ...
