Details, Details, Details,

Marker lights... unfortunately no longer able to procure the correct re-plating.
Best I can tell after cleaning, these were silver zinc. Sprayed them with a steel color paint.

You do amazing work!
Ive powered thru all of this thread and I was surprised that you didnít paint the car yourself.
Iím sure you have that skill set.

Really incredible job!
