As this is a Garage Restoration of sorts.. I plan to do a bunch of labor intensive projects to fix'er up a bit. Maybe someday I'll attack some serious restoration, but for now, I want to enjoy this thing....

So - not wild about the wheels.. and the body color accent with some rusty old chrome. Hmm, wonder what it would look like if I painted the center black? And - get the chrome cleaner out and polish up the wheel as best I can for now.. here's a before and after pic .....

Before:

In process .. primer, then semi gloss black..

And the somewhat finished look .. without the center cap cover. Need to find some new ones.. they may not clean up. Again, a bit of work, but I like this look better than the tan centers. now, 4 more wheels to go!
