James, while it's still on the bench... I don't believe the grill under the windshield wipers is chrome on the 1:1. It wasn't on my 1960.

Awesome build James, I am a big fan of the Winfield style paint jobs and has given me a taste to get my full size repainted.

You are right Tom, it is painted body colour on the 1:1 however it is a separate part so I suppose it could be chromed.

My 1960...  I guess you could chrome that part if you wanted to.. don't know if it would cause glare back at the driver, but with a custom anything goes!
