    1967 Big Buick One day at a time.

    Started late last night but got 1 done and mounted. Painted it pewter not standard silver, and scotch brighter the center caps. My son's Christmas gift. He'll be putting these on his 83 Delta 88 2dr, i got this summer. Only 79k on it sorry no pics of that though.

    So you scrubbed with Scoth bright then spray painted?

    Yes, any bare metal spots I etched prime, then painted and used U-pol aerosol clear.

    Cant say have ever seen those rims. Unusual. Those early eighties Delta 88 coupes are good looking cars. Good luck with the project!

    Yeah there not easy to come by. Usually only on Delta. Chrome centers with painted shells.
