Reply To: Grille shutter finish


When I purchased my 1931 42 convertible in 1984, the grille shutters neither worked, nor were they plated.  When I did some elective plating, I removed the radiator and grille, replaced the shell with a better chromed one that I found somewhere, and plated the shutters.  Moreover, I made the shutters functional.  The improvement in appearance was astounding.  When the shutters were closed, the effect was one mass of gleaming chrome.  I definitely would wait for the plating to be done.
