Gold To Chrome

Postby harleyyy » Wed Sep 29, 2010 9:55 am

I'm finally going to change up my old trusty 84 Spector from gold to chrome. It's almost been like having a homely looking girlfriend. She'll get out more once complete. [smilie=icon_biggrin.gif]

Parts are en route.

Naw, no "metal" look for me, rock n' roll but not Kip Winger either [smilie=fun_84.gif]

My long time companion has had her cosmetic work done. She is now ready for more public appearances. [smilie=grinning-smiley-003.gif]

All set up and intonated, sounding monsterous through the Cafe Walter strung with these...

Very nice indeed... [smilie=grinning-smiley-003.gif] Not a huge fan of gold hardware either, but don't know if that mod would look as cool on my white '84 NS2...

With white, I might consider Jack's suggestion to black. [smilie=grinning-smiley-003.gif]

I don't recall ever seeing a BadAss 1 bridge in black though. There's got to be some out there, right? [smilie=coz.gif]
