It is stainless not chrome ,I guess chrome would just scratch and rust..Just over $230 plus freight.

Spent most of my play time drilling out spot welds and getting out broken/rusty bolts. It is amazing how good the seat brace is.

finally got the final part for this Porsche and had that dropped off. threw in the aftermarket wiring harness for the LED fog lights for the Cayman and put on some wider rims from a porsche SUV. Needed 3/4" spacers for the rear to clear the caliper. Looks pretty sweet. I also adjusted the bumper better now that we weren't in a huge rush.

Tonight I got the inside of the passenger door primed. I am ready to mock it up on the hinges and get it welded back together. First I am going to roll the bottom and trim it off so it's not in the way.

By the way, the bent up bottom of the door isn't metal, it's the masking tape. I covered all the areas where I will be welding to spray weld thru primer there.
