Chromed plastic can go all the way back to the early to mid 70s, but either way, still a cool find. Did you get the chrome you were looking for?

It's held on by two side tape...so no holes to drill.  And yes I got the trim piece between the rear grab handles.  You can see the handles installed in the second pic.  It was the stainless trim along the back edge of the roof.

Well I've been working...slowly..on rebuilding an Auburn/cone type mopar suregrip unit...for the last couple years.  I've actually had the suregrip unit for close to 20 years!!  Anyway I got the cones machined down so they would not bottom out in the case, then used small washers to figure out what thickness of shim I would need to bring the lash back into spec on the spider gears.
 
Mine turned out to be .060, 60 thou.  I luckily had some scrap stainless sheet in that thickness so I had my machinist cut me a couple shims.  Then I reassembled everything.  Next was to bring down my 3.23 open unit, and the suregrip unit, and have the two made one.  I finished installing everything last night.
 
Took the wagon out for my errands today, and a good highway jaunt...to make sure all way well and lubed up.  Then I found a nice deserted section of road and crank 'er up....car left lite both tires up effortlessly and left two nice even black marks down the road....

And I'm almost ready to swap out my rear drums for a rear disc set-up.  The rotors are out at my machinist having the center register hole opened up.  Not that I have any problem with the rear drums...11x2.5 hass all the stopping I need..BUT...I bought all the stuff years ago and figure I can use the rear drum set-up from the wagon on the Desoto.  And plus it will look cool seeing the rear disc through the cop car rims...;)

I suddenly developed a very bad tranny leak.  I jacked up the back of the car for something...and I must have lost over a quart of fluid over night.  Climbed underneath and found the leak...darn shift tower seal leaking!!  So down to Napa to get the seals, new filter kit and fresh fluid.  Dove into it and would have finished it in one evening...but I was so obsessed with finding a filter kit that had a neoprene gasket that I neglected to look at the filter it self.  Turned out the A518 filter kit I decided on was from a late 90, early 2000 vehicle...so it ran the deep pan.  The filter will not work on the earlier shallow pan of a 727.  So next day I had to go out and russel up a proper kit.  The kit I got had a moxed gasket...cork and rubber I think.  Seems to be holding well.

Ok so went through this and it did move the piston out closer...but there was still way to much slop in between the piston and the pads/rotor.
