Old treasures and a little more cleaning

Some how, I managed to save a lot of stuff from my old Chevelle SS from years ago. One thing was my Chevrolet USA-1 license plate. I wanted to put this on the Belair so I proceeded to remove the rear license bracket, strip it and prime it. While the bracket was off, I wanted to clean the nasty green algae from the trunk lid too. It cleaned up nice and the paint was actually not back underneath either.

I remounted the license plate bracket and put the USA-1 plate on. Of course this will have to be removed when I register it for street use, but for now, I think it looks good. What do you think?
