Fitting the SD trim finally!!!


Figured I better mock the trim up and drill the holes before final sanding. Question, what is the best way to polish the thin strips of trim, they have paint on them from the paint job they did last time.

the thin strips are of course bright coat anodized as am sure you are aware.In order to polish them you'll need to strip the anodizing off first which i have heard that oven cleaner works well.As far as getting them restored correctly I have no idea where to get this done-but if you know of or find a good source please let me know! Speaking from experience there is no one I can recommend to do this process.If you can get a good enough polisher and then find a anodizer who will use clear anodizing that worked for myself.

It appears you are putting all the emblems on in the correct spots. That must be a first! How many SD cars, 66-67 have we seen with wrong emblems and dislocated emblems....!

That said I believe the emblem you have mocked up on the front fender is only for the dash and trunk lid. They are a cool emblem but not originally mounted in this location.

 Yes you are correct, I was trying to see if I liked it better.

 So...This is a Conroy car. Did they have extra emblems? Have seen some pics with more than the V8 emblem on front fender???? Conroy installed???

 You don't have to re-anodize them, my 60 impala, I had the trim stripped and polished and it was fine, none of these cars are in the weather anymore or salt, where they would need it.

The Sport Deluxe fender badge is an interesting look, but I think thats also what people originally think when they add the SS flags etc. Good intentions, but not quite right (Just one chubby guys opinion.)
Beautiful car!

Getting the Sport Deluxe perfect on the rear quarters is a challenge , i have seen them too high, too low , not level .

On a '66, if the Sport Deluxe script looks too high on the quarter, it is correct. I always felt they sat the emblems a little high on the '66s.

I agree, as long as it looks factory original that is all that matters too me , also gives the car more value .
