Awesome looking. I'm going to send them my rear bumper to do this winter.

They did my vent windows a few years ago, incredible results for a nice price. I am sending bumpers there soon.

Their chrome seems to scratch easier from my experience.

All chrome scratches easier than people think. But their's is so perfect to begin with that any wear is obvious.

That may be so but my bumper gets light scratches from even a soft clean rag it seems. I hate to even wipe/wash it. I know the factory chrome didn`t scratch like that but the chrome wasn`t as nice as Tri City for sure. BTW, when did they switch over from only doing bumpers?

That is great news that Tri-City is back doing work on other pieces. I know a couple years ago it was bumpers only.

Their website is focused on bumpers, so I asked about small parts & I am very happy I did. :-)

barry, years ago, i read an article about cleaning chrome bumpers and wheels. it was recommended to use wd-40 and clean, used, cloth baby diapers to avoid scratches. what does tri-city recommend ?
beer

Damn,

When I was at Carlisle a few years ago they only said they did bumpers. I guess I'll have to start sending them the smaller pieces now. Thanks for posting this info !

Paul’s does excellent work, and you will pay for it. The front bumper for my 60 Pontiac was $1650 three years ago. Great work If you are building a competitive show car. Honestly, Paul’s does beautiful work. But, I had rear bumper with guards done for same car at Tri-City, $925. And it’s really nice. I have got at least six bumpers from Chuck at Tri-City in last few years, All were really great quality finish. No issues! Very happy with them.

I had both my front and rear bumpers done at Tri City about 10 years ago and couldn't be happier.
