    I was working in the shop today and noticed something leaning up against my cabinet by the door. Come to find out my bumper is back and the delivery guy put it in the shop while I wasn't looking, I guess. I may have been in the house at the time.

    Anyhow it's back...it's all wrapped up with some sort of special paper and bubble pack. I don't think I'm even going to unpack it, just ship to Madmooks. My liftgate is DONE!!

    Here's a few pics of my liftgate after rechroming by Madmooks. Looks pretty good to me!!! Can't wait to see it in person. As soon as it's back here I'm sending my front bumper to have it chromed, and maybe some of my interior trim.

    Madspeed: What are you needing to chrome? bumpers should be easier than potmetal, and easier to find a decent shop for chroming bumpers...
    and WHERE are you located? I can recommend a good shop in west-central Tennessee... It's much better to find one close enough to deliver/pick up the parts... and get to talk to the owner/operator of the shop...

    Look Ma, no waves. Looks outstanding! I know that was posted years ago, but it just didn't get much love.
