Front Bumper Rechrome
The front of the car was damaged in a sand storm while traveling across the country. The front of the car was repainted but the bumper was left as is. Over the years this lead to surface rust forming on the face of it. The bumper was almost perfectly straight so it didn't need a lot of work to get it redone. Pacific Plating in San Diego did the work. UPDATE: Originally the bumper looked excellent but after about 8 months, rust is starting to show through an area under the headlight. I'm going to have to contact them to have them redo it.
Front Swaybar Install
I happened to have a spare front sway bar for my 1964 Polara 500 convertible so I decided to add it to the wagon. These sway bars are the easiest ones to install since they bolt to existing parts of the car. Later ones require different lower control arms.
