Got the bumpers back, took asking the right questions and TIME to find someone to do them like the factory. R & D does work for a Vette restoration shop in Florida that takes cars to NCRS meets. - he knew EXACTLY what I wanted!

I AM VERY PLEASED and WILL SEND THE NEXT JOB TO THEM.
If anyone is interested...
R & D Finishing in Elizabethton Tenn.
Turn around was a month - dropped them at fall autofair in CLT - received them today.
2 bumperettes
1 rear Bumper
1 shifter handle
$840 FOB Eastern TN.

These are not highly polished - NICKEL CHROME ~ NO COPPER ~ they have the sanding scratches and nice sharp crisp edges, the backs are nicely finished as well.
When I dropped them he drew out illustrations of the tooling marks and scratches and replicated them.
