Here's where this whole story got started, the grille for Project Get Shorty. The grille is comprised of five streamline tubing bars, which needed to be chromed. Like so many others, I just did what I thought would work, and because of it cost myself much more time and money. In order to clear my headlights, on three of the bars I had to cut half moons in them. When doing so, the tube expanded and I had to clamp and weld it back into place, but I couldn't quite get it exact. To make up for the low and high spots I filled the area with brass... If I only knew then what I know now.
