very nice, is the rechroming process over there better then it is here?

I actually followed the old MG standard of painting the inside of the chromed bumpers

I think the chromium in the states may be better as the shops have better equipment to check the thickness. But I am quite happy with the chrome here. I did paint the back sides Rustoleum silver.

The cost for the chrome on the bumpers was $114.00 for 4 pieces.

Cheers

looks great .

But where is the rebuild happening ? it looks like under a freeway overpass ? Aren't you worried about parts going missing ? There's quite a few American cars around there with a silver/grey c3 as well.

There are several C3 under the express way shop. Also some people live there to watch over the shop.

I had bought replacement vinyl seat cover. But after stripping the seat frame I found rust so had to remove the springs and power coat the frames The interior shop will recreate the springs and foam.
