      That car looks beautiful Chris. I remember when you bought it.
      it's a credit to you and shows your persistence to get over the finishline.
      Enjoy it.

          Hi Chris.

          Wonderful work (and a really interesting thread).

          Did you get the wheels re-chromed? Was this done locally and were there any issues with the process?

          cheers

            Hi Mark,

            The wheels were pretty straightforward, I took them to a local wheelworks and had the centres separated from the rim, then had the rims rerolled to ensure "true".
            Next I sent off all the pieces (5x rims 5x centres)to a chrome works in Albury where they did a great job.
            On their return the pieces went back to the wheelworks for the centres to be jigged up and welded back into the rims.

              Thanks Chris.

              Did you use Albury Electroplaters?
