Polished Stainless Wickerbill Hardware

I'm installing my wicker bill tomorrow on the Z.

I was having something painted on my other black car so I took advantage and had the Wickerbill painted gloss black. It also got covered in Xpel for the hell of it b/c the other car was getting some work done. On Fri the tail lights and marker lights get tint wrapped and rear Chevy badge removed. Needless to say the ass end will be a lot of black with the exception of that great looking stainless exhaust. I wanted to break it up a bit and decided to order some stainless hardware from Ring Bros. and give them a bit of a polish.

Here they are before and after. Tomorrow I'll finish them up, clean all the left over rouge etc. And install the whole deal once UPS comes with my order from McMaster Carr.

Those are nice Button Heads. I've looked at maybe offering these with our Wicker Kits. $7per Head adds up quick but they look Bad Ass

Thank you

Thanks guys, install went perfect.
It looks great but will look even better once the tail lights and markers get tinted. The overdose of red throws it a bit on the Black Z's.

The stock wicker bill hardware is M8 ours is 1/4 20 so the riv nut gun was less cost for customers to install. If you have the stock wicker bill and hardware you can get the $7 each hardware from ring bros.
