Hi Gary! Yes still in Seymour.  The car is in North Carolina at the moment about to get painted. Chrome is coming off in a week or two.  The guy got an estimate from a place in Missouri...$16-18k! I have a couple leads now but will also give Bar Plating a call.

That estimate was to do all the trim etc. I don't think I need that. Bumpers, door handles, headlight bezels, maybe a couple other things.  I'll polish the stainless myself.

Hey Bob
              I recommend Bar plating 203-630-1046 ask for Bruce here in Meriden, Connecticut. Just had all my chrome done for my 62 Cadillac and he was fair.

Bob you know me. Gary, from Oxford,CT with the 54 Caddy coupe de ville. Are you still in Connecticut?

What city are you located in ? To rechrome your bumpers for a good job will be at least 800 to 1000 dollars each as they are not 1 piece . stainless can be polished . you can do this yourself as it will be off the car if the body shop is going to paint your car correctly ,mothers polish is very good for stainless can be purchased at any parts house that sells polishes,That is if there are no deep scratches or dents,Get prices from a few platers as prices vary by location .

Hi guys,  I did reply before this but must've not pressed the post button. He does do this professionally. He does tours of Palm Springs  and Los Angeles mid century buildings. He does talks with slide shows also . He posts on Instagram and Facebook all the time. Phil

From the photos above your chrome looks great. Photos can be deceiving but I wouldn't touch it.

Would try a definitive cleaning and polishing to see what happens before calling the platters.

Jose,

Can't get the damned 56 out of my head. Still trying bribe wife. Now with the downturn will see if my stocks bounce back.

Stay turned. Or someone will realize what a great deal this is and buy it.

I just love how he makes up words to describe the cars. I learned a new word today from this video, "Fantabulous"... Clay/Lexi

Bob,

If you have good core parts free of heavy pitting and rusted out sections, without question go to Sandy's bumpers in Syracuse NY. You will get quality plating that will last a long time. Prices are fare. PM sent
