I am restoring the grille on my 67. One of the 'bars' has broken off in the grille. I have the missing piece. I tried to solder the piece back onto the grille using solder for sweating copper pipes. This does not seem to work. Anyone have any ideas on how to put the missing bar back into the grille? I don't know if the grille is made out of tin or aluminum, tough to tell.

Any ideas?

The solder used to sweat pipes together does not have the tensile or ductile strength for your application. Although silver solder is quite strong, probably not enough yet for your application. Brazing should be more than adequate, if you aren't sure, take the piece to your local chrome plating shop, they will re-attach it & chrome plate it for you.

Hey tbear - just curious what paint you will use to duplicate the blue/gray color. Wondering if I can get that color in a spray can.
Thanks
