Things are looking up for these 45-46-47 year old dog dishes. Luckily I found this set from a fella in Florida. Had some various dents but, eh what can say? The caps are now as good as new. Maybe better. Finished in single stage off-white.
The center circle around the bowtie will be red-orange like OEM. The bowtie will be masked, then commence with ze scuff and shoosting.
I found a pair of GM fenders that were 'rather junk' so I thought they'd be perfect for my truck. :-) This is therapy. For ME.
All in all, is what it is, and it's definitely maybe most probably, not the most cost effective way to go about a pair of fenders, but again they're GM and they didn't cost much since I bought them locally. I have connections. (lol)
Poverty Caps. These are rather rare. Painted white versions that aren't rusted the hell out. So now we make them beautiful once again. Goal is to have the stock wheels body color and caps stock off-white with the red circle around the bowtie. I like the humble hub cap.
Over all, these were in very nice shape and only needing a little Evercoat Metal Glaze for smoothing them out. The OEM paint came off with ease. The caps are very thin sheet metal that did not require much effort to dolly out.
