Photos in the “8" Snowflake Wheel refinishing” Album

Album photo
Description: I have a set of 8 inch snowflake wheels for the 1979 T/A.
two of these wheels had gray painted on the inserts and two had gold inserts. I wanted to try something a little different that I saw on someone else's wheels. The inserts painted aluminum cast wheel color. Tell me what you think. I have only done one wheel so far.
