Chrome spray from a rattle can
#11
Looks like i have 2 options. Renovate or replace witha repro. I will make my decision based on how brittle the parts are. If the plastic trim everywhere else is anything to go by i may have to go for a repro.

Probably the best plan going to repops, saves a load of time and effort and probably almost as good...……… I did say almost!!

Now, if the dollar exchange was more favorable...…...

I replaced my originals with repop and have kept the originals with the same idea in mind someday. If you do decide to have them done, I would sure like to hear/see the results.

 I'll try to keep that in mind. I have heard good things about Orna, but we must remember these parts are old and can only be made as good as the part will allow.
