Didn't realize these were flash chromed.  If that's the case you could always have them hard chromed again.  Here are some pieces I polished this past weekend.

Yes you can "burn" the stainless.  I have gotten several pieces extremely hot and haven't burned a piece.  What cutting compound are you using?  Stainless isn't like chrome.  I have even sanded areas after working dents out and going from 80-1200 grit then on to polishing

All 3 years are the same.  You can polish them out if you so desired.  It is a lot easier to polish them if they are on a car before it is painted.  If there are dings or scratches in them then those will need to be taken care of before polishing obviously.  No info on repos.  I have polished all my original windshield and back glass trim and plan on doing the drip rail moldings at a later date.

Thanks.  Like I said it is far from perfect but I am satisfied with it.
13  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Galvanizing a Fuel Tank on: March 25, 2014, 08:10:45 PM
Yes it was spray paint.  I used a base of gray primer.  Once dry I misted it lightly with water then used duplicolor chrome and misted the tank with the water still on the tank.  Once paint was dry I wiped off the water and added another mist of the chrome paint.  What you see is the result.  It took several attempts but I think it is close to what I have at work as far as galvanized metal for reference.  Remember that the look of galvanized will be different depending the process.  Here is what the tank looked like before.

I think eventually cook is going to figure out the process for making gold in his shop-- Cheesy

So if the tanks in good shape under the goop ,strip it ,coat it with Shark skin and leave it ?

I wish jano...

Here is the my tank I finished up a couple weeks ago.  Its not perfect but I think its as close as Ill be able to get it.
