Default little bruce no likey chrome!

since i've been itching to do mods but car-less, i had to get back on it and show bruce some appreciation with a well deserved dechroming

disassembled the tails. dremeled a 1/2" gap at the bottom where the lens meets the housing and starting separating with two screwdrivers. got inside and i started to mask off the red so i could paint the chrome. i decided to clean it up with a little denatured alcohol and remembered that these things are just "painted" with chrome.

not much elbow grease needed to rub the "chromium" away
i recommend a qtuip to get in those hard to reach corners.

there's a funky reflection that makes it look like i left chrome at the top right but it's not, just a reflection of the lens.

woohoo! now i just have to put the CF driver's handle on

I can't believe this thread is 18 pages long and nobody's said it yet...


Well, well, well. If it isn't the serious, elusive Leroy Green. I've been waiting a long time for this, Leeroy. I am sick and tired of hearing these bullsh!t Superman stories about the wassa legendary Bruce Leeroy catching bullets with his teeth. Catches bullets with his teeth? Nigg@ please!

Like what you're doin', Glen... keep up the great work!
