Rattle Can Yea or Nay.
« on: May 09, 2017, 15:48:40 »

So I have a bunch of these hub caps, but they are green and peeling chrome film.
The Chrysler centers on most are in decent shape.
Thought about trying rattle can chrome, but that would be too much chrome IMHO. :umm:
So a before/after.

Nope.  Wrong image for these cars.  Go with the rattle can chrome, you will not be disappointed.

Is there a green hue to the paint or is that just the picture?

Or silver paint pen, it will give it the look of the turbine caps on the 70's LeBarons.  Needs something to break up the black that that's coming from me... haha

OK, I'll agree it might be a better look on a Diplomat instead.

The green must be coming from the 'lawn' of weeds.

Next trip to a car store, I'll look at getting a silver pen and try it out.

I had these type of hubcaps, but I kept blowing the right front off various rims into another dimension or time at extreme high speeds.  :umm:

The hubcaps were never seen again. :hmm:
They might have hit someone 50 yrs in the future.  :o

Wind tunnel tests showed the outer fins caused low pressure at high speeds and the hub cap would be 'sucked' off the rim.  :huh:

Should be suing OldCarCo, for faulty design. :rant:
