Anyone selling complete chrome trim for a '76 wagon? Or has anyone gone the route of cleaning them up and using a powder coat system. I've seen some powder coat ads that had a bright silver plus a clear powder coat.
Thanks,
Max

We sell most of the bits and clips. I don't think that all the original stuff is reproduced yet, or if it is, I haven't seen it.
Have the body trim, grille trim, and windshield trim molding, and most of the clippy dealies. Nothing for the door window frames, the top drip rail, or the side and back windows.

Have heard of some people doing restorations, but not sure what the prep is on a piece like ours. How does a material like this handle the 350 or so of the powder coating process?

Withstanding the 350 deg is a major concern. I've read some web articles on dipping the pieces in a cut in half longwise pvc tubing. The mixture is a solution of Drano and water. I've also seen suggested Red Devil lye which I've never heard of before. This process takes the anodizing off, leaving you with pieces that can be polished, but will need constant upkeep.
