There is indenture that appears to be prior to chrome. Not something you might see on the next unit



That same Cat snuck into my garage when I got home....I only discovered this when reopened the door a short time later and he darted out. I set a humane trap

an original 72...note there are no holes in the lower edge, my AMD unit has holes and the area around them is sans chrome. Also note the contour of the lower edge is not correct on the repop compared to this 72

So far I like it but it's just sitting in the garage. I have dusted/cleaned it by using my shop vac with the soft hair broom attachmen. It's made by planet color and it's probably not cheap my painter tacked on a few bills over the initial esitmate this is it http://www.planetcolor.com/en/Products/~/media/Shared/Planet-Color/catalog.ashx about 15 pages in.

A center cap completed (only 2 are done so far) I shot it over light grey primer but they had a greenish appearance, I decided to mist them over in a silver and then I cleared them. I am pleased with the end result

Beautiful car. First one I have ever seen with that hood treatment. I like it.

Yes but since I didn't fix the neatly drilled holes before I sent it out for paint I thought I would look for a pin type emblem, looks like a stick on and 2 small dabs of sealer for good measure
