Default Brass Mg M type rad shell

Hi all
I'm working on a brass rad shell for an 1930 M type MG.
Another model as the F type I made previously.
Lots of experience gained from the first one and that made things easier!
Here some pictures.
Greetings Paul

Very beautiful work. Will the final surface be polished brass or chrome plated?

Hi Paul,
I love seeing your nice brass working. Patient attention to the details.
I am seeing your run-on/off tab - sure is nice for avoiding melt-backs on the edges.
Yes, making files is part of the job.
Sanding with 320? That is all I go for when plating - but I sand the copper, too.

Keep us posted on your progress, please.

Hello Kent and Peter
Thank you very much for this huge compliment

Kent yes these tabs they give confidence on welding tricky edges and that is a great way to do them.
Great you notice them right away.
About the patient! Oooh sometimes a long breath is needed and that's a big thing.
Yes the last stage off sanding will be around 360/400 grit.
When you got the parts back from the company that put the copper layer on it, what grit did you ended with before bringing it back for final chrome plating?


Peter your dead right on that Mister G would be ........
