    For the last few years, I have been working on various projects for friends and several members here on the board. I have never publicly advertised my services, so I have decided to let the membership know what I can provide.

    I specialize in stainless trim polishing, but am available for many other services as well. Below is my website with some of the projects I have worked on, with before and after photos.

    Feel free to send me a message, email, or reply to this thread to find out how I can help you!:3gears:

    Can you restore dinged trim. My wheel opening moldings need some help.

    It depends on how bad they are. If they've been flattened by a truck, there's not much hope:laugh:

    Shoot me a photo and I can gauge it a bit better.

    Not flat, Just everyday parking lot door dings. They wern't really noticeable until I put a mirror shine on them.

    Probably...although it seems that door edge guards are pretty plentiful in NOS form, and repair of old ones might be much less cost effective than just buying a set off ebay for $20-30. What year and model are you referring to?

    Short answer - yes. :)

    Guys,
    I just want to give kudos to Adam for his polishing services. Adam polished and removed a couple of kinks I had on the SS trim for my 67GS grill. Adam was exceptionally reasonable on the pricing, turn around was quick and the quality excellent. [not easy to do as the trim is small and flimsy] the return packaging first rate. I will be using Adam to do my wheel trim in the future. Thank you Adam!

    To add to flippermtc's post regarding the flimsiness of the 67 grille trim, I was very surprised to see such thin material on this stuff. I could have easily mangled the two top and bottom pieces with the slightest lapse in concentration.

    Guys,
    One thing I forgot to mention. Adam also offered to paint the center trim piece red for me at no charge! Came out great.

    Adam, do you have a lead on or sell the retainer clips for the vinyl moldings and the upper reveal molding on the doors? Looks like I will be sending you all my stainless trim, needing polishing only.

    I don't unfortunately. I would try a local auto body supply store.

    I hope you don't need your trim back until January. This one-man show had quite the backlog and a hard deadline with the convertible.:eek:

    Adam, I don't see a problem, more interested in having a great out come.
