Thinking about putting a chrome grille in my 51. I tend to shy away from Ebay on items like this. Does anyone have any recomendations on who has the best quality
grille? A freind told me the Goodmark brand was the best, but are they worth the extra cost?

Whatever you end up buying, keep it waxed.

And if you're clever try to paint the back side of the chromed bars on whatever you buy. Very common for one to rust from the back side. All is looking nice and shiny until you realize there's nothing holding up that thin little layer of chrome plating any longer...

@ Jon G - Wow!! Thanks for that! My '46 is currently torn apart for restoration so now would be the perfect time to do this. What do you recommend painting it with?
