Got these back from the platers, got them masked off and shoot in the black paint then detailed them.

Nice! thumbs_up
I wish we still had a plater up here. The cost of shipping stuff back and forth to the lower 48 makes getting things plated prohibitively expensive. frown

You should look into Powder Coated Chrome...hard to tell it from the real deal.

I had to replace a 5 year old power steering pump...the '56 steers great again!

I've thought about that. Also considering chrome vinyl wrap for the bumpers (the only thing that needs chrome on my truck).

Applied primer filler to driver side rear barn door of the 1952 Chevrolet Suburban (in the background). Next up fixing hinge lock mechanism, interior paint & then Windser Blue exterior paint. Enjoy!

I used the Cu-Ni line and it does work easy. I just finished installing my CPP adapter bracket and dual circuit master. My 49 3600 had a single circuit and when you pushed the pedal down it would travel 3/4 of the way to the floor and then go hard. Stopping was iffy at best. I got the dual circuit in and got the system bled. The pedal does exactly the same travel with the same lack of stopping power. So I started from scratch and bled it all again really watching for air bubbles. Again exactly the same results.

The master has about 32nds inch gap between the push rod and master. The brakes are adjusted a little tighter than I like but I was trying to cut down pedal travel. I even sanded the newish shoes and cleaned any evidence of dirt/oil in the drums. Same result.

I'm guessing my best option (read most expensive) is to install discs front and rear. I'm really disappointed because I've had the truck 6 weeks and the first big show is tomorrow.

Thanks for letting me ramble.

Unimogr2, do a post in the Driveline Forum and see if anyone can help you out. I suspect there will be some suggestions.
