Question on a '66 T120R

I owned one of these in 1966 but can't remember if the fenders were polished stainless, polished aluminum, or chrome. I'd like to make a new T100 look that way. I've seen a picture of chrome fenders on a T100 but I'm thinking mine were stainless?

Well, polished is a relative term. But I agree that they were more of a brushed finish and not a high polish chrome-like finish. Although a lot of them ended up that way once they left the dealer.

Rob

Mine are polished. Definitely a relative term, they aren't as mirror-like as decent chrome is...
