I've never attempted to get thru on a seconds sale before, but today it seems to be impossible....? Okay, I messed up and dialed 800 first (without a leading 1-), you get a BUSY indication/message (no Hold) - ie a dead end.
If you dial 1-800- then you go into a queue so eventually you'll get a representative..?
After holding a few min.. finally got a rep on the line and the ordering was quick/efficient... Another $250 gone!

A few items look like they may be a good purchase.
My experience with some of these reproduction plated parts: they are a big gamble. They look great now, but if they were not properly rinsed before plating, they may pit from the inside out. Rinsing is a problem with platers. Corrosion pitting will take a few years to happen and there isn't a thing you can do about it except remove the plate and start over with the plating process. Danchuk knows which platers have a habit of doing this and which of their plated parts need to move out quickly because they have a shelf life before this happens. But they obviously won't share that information. Personally, I'd buy the parts unplated and have them plated myself, or buy them at a price that accounts for my expense of replating them.
Based on that, you might as well replate your original parts, or ask Danchuk if they have some severly pitted examples that can be replated and you can buy for pennies, with the intention of having them properly prepared and replated yourself.

Over the years, I've purchased many "seconds parts" from Danchuk for my '56 and '57. Some plated. Some not. Never had a problem with anything that I can recall. To this day, I still can't find what is wrong with some of this stuff that it's
marked seconds. Saved alot of money. Lucky I guess, Carmine.
