Tony,

------Center caps that I see in your pics arent chromed anyway.Just aluminum.You can polish them easily.
------Easy to see that they were,indeed,on a race car as the rims are drilled.These will take a polish very easily,and will look killer!...........Bill S......ol red!

Sorry for the late reply.

Bill, these center caps are chromed plastic. I was planning to send them to American Plastic Chrome to be redone--can any of you guys recommend anyone else that does good work?

Also, these wheels have a brushed finish and I like the look, but they need to be refinished to look good. Is there any homegrown way to duplicate this kind of finish or should I send them out to get redone professionally?

Thanks,
Tony

Tony,

-----Im sorry,the pic makes them look like the aluminum caps.As far as the wheels go I used to use Scotchbrite pads and bolt the wheels to a jacked up car.After making sure the car is totally secure put it in drive and pretend you have a lathe..........Bill S......ol red!

These wheels look very similar to factory pictures of
a Firebird Trans-Am 1972.
