From Randy Bergers records the charge for redoing his Caribbeans chrome grill was $5586 plus shipping in 2015. It is nice chrome but it should be for that price . I know it took a long time to get it completed

The one you have pictured is 56 Clipper as it has rubber on bottom face, No real difference that can be seen when on car casting number is different, 56 have holes in bottom for rivets that hold on rubber gasket not used on 57 58 clipper see photo and two holes that have phillips screws to fender in addition to studs on back side

I Used a different method. Used a Hayden clutch fan as used on later cars with a thermostat controlled clutch fan. Al that was needed for my Clipper (Supercharged Studebaker V8) was cut down end of water pump shaft diameter to size of clutch fan.
The shaft didn't need to be cut all the way back do to angle cut in clutch Can still reinstall stock spacer and fan. the fan and clutch were chosen from Hayden catalog which has all needed dimensions of fan such as diameter bolt circle etc. With clutch and fan together fan blade center was at correct location on the HD radiator shroud I had installed . In my case the stock 4 blade fan was larger diameter than Heavy duty fan with 6 blades.
Advantages are better cooling with less noise from fan when not needed due to thermostat controlled clutch

I was not big fan of PepBoys Advance Oriely seemed to have high prices if you register and shop and wait to check out they usually send a 20 % off offer. Really prefer NAPA as they have good deals usually on weekend if you order on line and have free shipping to home. During peak of plague I ordered on line and would go to store call and they would bring parts out and put into trunk thus no personal contact. My local NAPA has some older people who understand that all cars are not chevy or ford. When looking for items like belts and hoses give them size they can use info to get a part that fits.

Diamond backs are different type of ww as I understand it. I follow their instructions on those good results. On regular brand ww that I have I use old school methods ( scotch brite comet cleanser and Westleys) with satisfactory results. I think the newer wsw by the non classic tire companies are of lesser quality material and tend to bleed the white and black together. The specialty tires should be better if for no other reason than the cost per tire.

Car looks great but the best thing I see is the three helpers or assistance that were with you. I really like yo see kids involved with old cars and their parents we need to build a replacement group of car people both boys and girls
