Refurbishing mirror brackets + radiator guard

Recommended Posts

Here is a little of my latest progress on the B rejuvenation. This past weekend I pulled the mirrors and radiator guard off my truck to refinish.

The brackets were pretty rusty and pitted especially the driver side.

I used my sandblast cabinet and also a wire wheel to clean them off.

There were about a dozen extra holes in the radiator guard that I had to weld up.

I have everything all bagged up ready for coating. I still haven't decided if I want to have them painted or powder coated. I plan to get quotes on both and then decide. I will be ordering new stainless acorn nuts and bubble mirrors soon, debating on ones with the MACK script or just plain to save a few bucks.

I think if you go with bubble mirrors got to get the Mack logo but I think another option would be flat back stainless.

Have you thought about getting a powder coat kit from HF inexpensive option for small stuff. Eastwood's is also on sale

If you read the reviews the HF one seems to be the same. Hit the thrift store and pick up a toaster oven or old kitchen stove and your in business. Probably less money than sending out for paint or powder coating.
