I'm flattered, Thank you for the kind words. I've slowed down a bit, but the quality is better. Thank you again.

Strip, Fix and polish. Polishing is dangerous to achieve this takes time and more time. You don't start out by doing a grille.

How much time does it take to restore one? Do you find these in typical salvage yard condition when you run across them?

Approximately 13 shop hours depending on damage. Then about 8 hours at home doing hand polish and sealer, plus re-assembling.
90% are wrecking yard finds others I purchase from people who have them to sell.
