Yep, bezels are Chrome, len's

Thanks.

I think you hit it on the

I think you hit it on the head with your 2/15 post. Probably not a lot of "racing performance" interest here.

Mostly all "custom" (or is it "Kustom") painting guys around here in Westchester and surrounding. If I was restoring my /60 I wouldn't send it to anyone around here.
