Actually they are stainless , It just looks a little plain, as you said paint might help

One of the motorcyles fairly new, victory ?? has a fantastic tail light that's a similar to a 39 ford except it blows the ford one away.  Its longer, brighter and gorgeous.

Find a pair of those and you will have a sleek rear end worth looking at !!!

Here's a picture of how I mounted my head lights not sure if I really like it this way.

Yes, they are chrome, It just looks a little plain, as you said paint might help

Those headlights don't look plain to me, they look good! Anyway, ometimes less is more. And, I agree once the car is painted with the chrome stantions that will really stand out. Sweet tail lights too!
Tighten it up til it strips, then back it off a quarter turn

Well a little bad news today, went to the garage this morning to fire her again to enjoy the sound and smell of exhau7st fumes. I noticed a small puddle of water under the car investigated and found a freeze plug leaking just wondering now if I should change all the ones I can get to ???

Probably not a bad idea to go ahead and change them all while your at it so you won't have to think about it. Was the plug rusted or leaking around the edge?

Not sure, I haven't really got a good look at it yet, It's up behind starter. My guess it's leaking around the edge. Why do you ask?

freeze plugs rust from the inside out ,  if you examine you'll probably notice a tiny pin hole in the middle where it is sweating through . it  can be hard to see with the naked eye.

Do all the ones you can get to, 63121, you're block is already going to be drained and it is cheap peace of mind.
