Re: 68 standard, restromod driver?

I was able to spend some quality time in the garage with the old lady for fathers day! Gotta thank my wife for keeping the kids occupied for the day so I could get some good wrench time.

Re: Emblem restoration

mine where not quite as bad and I was simply able to a good plastic buffing kit. I did not have any yellowing however. Also did my taillights and they came out looking new.
