The originals were a brass alloy, with a VERY thin back. Be very
careful with the buffing job, it's quite easy to "buff" all of the
way thru them.

That piece should be stainless.??
You can find these in very good shape and quite buffable for a
lot less than the cost of plating.

Anyone had any plating done lately???
Curious as to what re-plating a hood ornament for the '48
would cost a guy these days.?? The former owner had painted
it body color.?? When I stripped it off, I find no rust or
damage, but the chrome has freckles where it's been coming
