It is coming along, slowly but surely. I have done my bowtie, mirror caps, and tailgate handle. BOut to order my door handles.


These pics are from my Blackberry.

I bought the handle online from GMPD. I put 3 coats of clear on the mirrors, too. I did notice that. Any suggestions?

I know Duplicolor has my pewter in a spray can... you'd have to look on their site if they have a match for your's.

def some more clear on the mirrors and sand/buff
Yup. Wetsand with 2000 grit but make sure not to go through the clear then buff it back out and wait 30-60 days to wax IMO. What type of clear were you using Todd? One type of clear didnt work well for me but another brand did...I cant remeber which off the top of my head though.

i had better results with the duplicolor clear when i did like 6 thin coats of it over 3. cause it went shinny, to kinda shinny, back to real shinny
