Red ,Orange, & Chrome: The taillight restoration

The taillights on the Dino looked good but something looked off when they were illuminated. It was quickly discovered that the inner lens reflectors had their chrome flaked off causing an un-even light dispersion. Using a heat gun we split the reflector from the lens and then proceeded to blast the reflectors clean and then have them re-chromed. Once done they were bonded back to the original lenses. For good effect the lenses were then water sanded with 3000 grit sandpaper and soapy water topped off with compound polishing to their original freshly molded luster.
