    It was made by Shawn Mahaney (restoreatag.com) in Maryland. I will run it at the back of the vehicle. I will also register the car with an antique plate.

    The hood mldg is used to make the door mldgs. The hood mldg is too short to work for the doors after you make Jesse's "shorty" for the hood, so you need two hood mldgs.

    I built up a pair of pliers with weld to bend down the ends of the mldgs.

    I took a wood bit, removed the point and, shaped the shovel like end. I put it in a drill press, which will let me have total control while pushing out the dings and dents in the mldgs. Many hours in front of the TV after that.

    The side trim is done. It needs to go to the polishers.

    As I stated before these chromed garnish moldings have stretched me to my limit. I have finally found a workable solution to the problem.
