With that said here's my situation..My Scout II is a 73. I didn't purposely choose that year even though I really do like the grill. I'm BIG on chrome. I just like chrome!! Nothing against the current trend of black bumpers, black wheels, black grill etc. One of the pictures shows the '73 grill that I'm thinking was a one year only design. The other picture shows what exactly the trim looks like and the light bulb is to give reference to the size for those that aren't familiar with it.
My trim pieces are in good shape other than having 46 year old chrome. These pieces are plastic by the way. I'm currently trying to get prices on having them rechromed. There are options of "chrome" DIY kits and also "chrome" spray paint. All of the "chrome" spray paints I've ever seen are some variation of silver. I just don't think that'll look good with a chrome bumper sitting in front of it.
I'm wondering what you all have done or seen done to a '73 specific grill like mine. Do any of you have some of these pieces of trim that you aren't using that would allow me to "experiment" with different options. On another forum someone mentioned that I might consider having these made out of stainless steel. That's not a bad idea but I don't know who could do it OR what I'd cost. As always I'm very appreciative to any and all feedback. Thanks Guys! Mark
