Tom, there are a couple of methods to repair potmetal, none of them easy. I sent my potmetal parts (taillight housings, hood ornament, door handles and other diecast parts) to Potmetal Restoration in Tallahassee, Fla. Did a good job for me. The primary thing is he did NOT grind the surface of the item down till the pit (and the part) disappeared. I'm not entirely sure of his technique, but it does not leave you with a flimsy useless part. He advertises in HMN. Hope this helps. Be aware that some of the potmetal solders they hype will not hold plating, so what good are they? Good luck.<p>[ 08-01-2002: Message edited by: Randy Berger ]

TomP...to the right of "Collectable Automobile Discussion Forum" at the top of this page, you will see "search".<P>When the prompt for a subject box shows up, type "Pot Metal" and then scroll through various old posts. Hope this helps.<P>Regards, Peter J. wink.gif" border="0
