Chrome is available from Auto Zone in 4 different sizes. $10 for a package of each size.

MTL09,

Summit has some good stuff. What your looking at is brading...you have to take off the hoses and feed them through the opening at one end of the brading...a lot of trouble but looks really good. You also need end caps that come in different colors including chrome to make the ends look neat. In a lot of auto stores (like Auto Zone) they have complete packages that have the brading and the end caps all in one complete package with 3 or 4 different size bradings including the radiator hose, and all the colored/chrome end caps that you'll need to complete the job.

crewzin....

went to autozone.....started the sleeve changeover.....hope to do it slowly over a period of time...they didn't have any clamp type thingy to put at the ends of the sleeves etc.....I used your other suggestion and like where you have red trim on the engine I used a silver paint maker I picked up at michaels for a 1.99 and it works great

another question I see you have chromed out some of your engine parts...are those covers? or chrome or steel replacements?
so far pt warehouse seems to be the best priced for that type of dress up that I can see......

thanks for any info or advice....this is the first time I've really had a chance to take time...try to at least and tinker with a car..so thanks for everyone's help here....

Mike,

Loads of places sell everything you need for the engine and interior. Mine is a mixture of covers and new chrome parts. Here's a few places to look at.
