Reasonable means different things to different people.

I wouldn't touch chrome paint as it's just another name for silvery grey powder that rubs off, it doesn't remotely look chrome. The cost of rechroming is massive, many times what it would cost to sell the item if reproduced. You could try a chrome foil on it similar to what they use on model cars, but it wouldn't have any long lasting quality either.

I went off in left field on mine: I reused the stock 79 403 lower shells and fabbed up a pair of mounts to lower the EROD motor oilpan as low as I could get it - not low enough.  Use the adapter pan.

Having another suicidal thoughts day for no apparent reason, was fine and then out of nowhere my brain is burning and foggy and I just want to end it all.  Part of the reason is probably the whole car situation, it just pisses me off so much and is so depressing.  I wasn't even thinking about it at the moment though.  Bleh...

Nothing new over the past month or so...
The only thing I've done is pack up all of the interior parts into a nice big wardrobe storage box to store away until the time comes.
Now all the floor space in my garage has been filled up with stinkin' Mercury Grand Marque interior parts from my son's car. ;-) There was some water getting inside so we pulled everything out to find the leak.

Looking for a motor, but now it's getting cold outside so trips to the local 'yards have been few and far between.

Nice project & welcome.
 I have a write up somewhere on how to get the most out of one of those Olds 403's.  I considered building one I had in my '81 (the motor originally came out of a '79).  If  you're interested I'll see if I can't find that write up. I think I filed it away somewhere.

Good luck!

My father's business somehow got signed up to google ads, very similar to Yelp (and I think it shares the same reviews), regardless I think all such sites are BS especially Yelp where a disgruntle customer just leaves crappy reviews for no apparent reason.

The chrome trim comes off, but I would just use the chrome paint.
