Swapped out the front grille, courtesy of a car club member. It’s an old, used grille, and some of the chrome looks to be coming off at the edges in some places. Thinking about getting it re-chromed, or repainted in the same OE paint (silver birch metallic) as the body. What does everyone think about that?

As an aside, I visited a collision shop in Kirkland and got a quote for getting the roof restored. The trunk will come later, or I will just source an unmolested replacement and get that painted.

It’s gonna cost me a little north of $1600 to get the six roof holes welded shut.
