Tim there very few downsides to living in Raleigh. But there are no plating shops in North Carolina =,^(.
My driver side windshield needs to be rebuilt (rust and rot) and I have to find a place out of state that I can trust. I like/prefer when I can walk into a shop and and have a face to face with the person working on my car

the sills on my car are in very original condition, where the door shims plates the holes have corroded out and there is some honest time minor pitting, nothing not serviceable for an original driver. My plan is to try to fill the small pits and straighten the metal and the few small cracks I was going to use low temperature aluminium alloy welding rod. I like the high shine but it would not survive the humid climate where I live. The fine hand sanding and light polishing with a small Dremel tool for small areas. Any production chrome could loose these in high speed buffing. I read in Hemmings News of a shop that restores trim but I do not have the tel #. YouTube link to a video of welding rod,

Hi Bill.
I have been away for ten days visiting relatives in Melbourne.
I have dug out a few period pictures which show highly polished aluminium sill plates.
Note, the pictures of the hard topped coupe were taken in the Factory in Connersville.

Highly polished is what the judges want to see.
