Going through some stuff and I noticed something interesting. I have several sets of the tail trim. One set is distinctly different in that it does not have the bevel on the edge like all the others. Hmmm... that's weird. I showed them to Don and he suggested that possibly they had been rechromed. That makes sense that they might have had to grind them down some to get out pitting. I noticed the ones with no bevel also don't have casting numbers on the inside like all the others. Still more support for the rechromed idea. However... they are all the same size and shape. Did someone really grind all four of these perfectly by hand?

The 55-58 Mopar Parts catalogue list those as "rings" for the 57 and 58 Imperials. There are inners and outers, left and right (4 part numbers). Nothing about bevelled or non-bevelled.

Example PNs:

Ring, Inner, Right 1690 828, Left 1690 829
Ring, Outer, Right 1690 830, Left 1690 831

REFERENCE: Pg. 23-311 of the 55-58 Mopar Parts catalogue

Would guess Chrysler purchased this part from two outside suppliers, thus the differences. One of them didn't follow the blue print!

The chrome company grinded away all the edges and bevel - very normal thing to happen if the guys working with the parts don't care.
Pittings might be the reason, or a requested "el cheapo" work.

Look at the abutment curfaces and you'll see the wrong radius and unevenness.

The only safe thing is to repair and polish the parts yourself - that way the parts won't get "destroyed".

The more I look at these the more I think they were ground and rechromed. Not having casting numbers on the inside certainly supports that. The thing is there is no unevenness or lack of symmetry. They are exactly matched and consistent. It's almost like they dipped them in acid and melted away a 32nd of an inch and then rechromed them. Weird.
