Spitfire Mk2 grille material


Recommended Posts

Like Josef, I refurbished my Mk3 one (which I believe is the same as the Mk2, while the Mk1 is like a Herald) although I went a bit more aggressive with a bit of blasting to clean off the years of crud, followed by black paint (sprayed) and finally cutting back the highlights to polish them. There's a picture on my old LiveJournal

Probably lacquered aluminium, same as the Herald grilles. You can clean and polish back to a reasonably good shine with just Autosol, worked in with an old toothbrush. My Herald versions have lasted years after that.

Does it have to be an old toothbrush? Can't I just borrow my wife's?
