i watched a few you tube videos on spray on chrome, its been around for awhile.

think you need to watch out if you take something in to have chromed now.. they could paint it instead..

but charge you the chrome price..

eastwoods looked dull to me, and they use aluminum mixture from what I saw.

might want to check out auto paint stores to see what they say or have.

one video showed a car door being sprayed chromed,,looked like paint shop..

I did not know about the fuel pump till this site, about a year ago,

bobp.


did the 57 motor fit ?.

I have the chevy motor, and I had to make an adapter, and the swing does not go all the way to the end of glass. tried playing with it.

now I would go with that new one someone has made.

I have the sears portable unit, back in the 90s it was 25 bucks..

used it on my block with Costco baking soda...its does work..

but I hear its not used, I think they use baking soda mixed with something..


thought I had picture, but the soda gave a nice color..

I was just in garage,

turns out I bought that 2-5610 back in 1997, local napa store, 21 dollars,

its the same kit, I only used gaskets from it, but that acc pump looks to small, but , craig used it and it works,

Packard had the leather one, guess it swells ,,

randy will check out Daytona, thanks,

most brake cleaner is made with toluene,, wall marts brand has methanol, toluene and acetone, acetone is MEK,

MEK will attack plastic, so will toluene, but both of those in the gas tank, cleans up the fuel system. MEK will take out any water, toluene, will soften rubber parts,

and the exhaust smells sweet,, but you will get loaded too!...the olds days , sniffing glue, glues are made with that stuff..

mek is great to use for putting together plastic models, you let it run down the seam, and no glue residue..
