Trim polishing and repairs...

Leon Betts

Classic cars and shiny chrome go hand in hand. So not surprisingly, polishing and repairing stainless trim and chrome components is an important part of classic car restoration.

Today a customer brought in just about every bit of chrome and stainless trim off his EH Premier wagon for reconditioning. Alex, our paint shop apprentice, has become the Ol' School Garage trim expert and got the job.

Speaking from personal experience, repairing and polishing trim isn't as easy as it looks. Alex will utilise a five or six grades of sandpaper as well as a couple of buffing compounds to get the required finish. A miniature set of files, a hammer with tape on its face and wooden blocks comprise his tools of trade.

Cheers Leon
