    Just curious, did you have any of those chromed suspension components heat treated for hydrogen embrittlement? Down here a lot of that chrome will disqualify car for licensing without pre-requiste heat treatment (Certificate required). Failure can be sudden and have catastrophic results, however in saying that there are many old cars on the road with chromed suspension components that have been on the road for many years without issue. I had to have my components baked like a cake and have them certified as safe {For use}.

    Looks like a beautiful project. I'd like to see it done on my next trip to Italy. Maybe next summer.
    Does your dad own a chrome shop?? :)

    Had a chrome shop for 35+ yrs .I would always seriously warn customers by showing them some snapped and cracked suspension and steering parts from s icles and cars .They always backed down ,
