Wheel rim paint

Post  ScottT on Sat Aug 29, 2015 8:30 pm

Has anyone found a paint that gives a good match to the original argenised finish found on FB's & James wheel rims from the late 50's.

My 57 cadet has had its wheel rims painted (badly) in aluminium type paint and i'm looking to get them back to looking as original as possible, any ideas?

Years ago I used Ford steel wheel pint, do not know if it is still available , but had the desired finish, this was the sort of thing the steel wheels of escorts and Cortinas had on their rostyle wheels

... Halfords steel wheel paint available in an aerosol. It comes out slightly silvery at first but if you follow it with Halfords petrol proof clear lacquer, also available in aerosol, it will dull it down to a sort of matt silvery grey. Of course you can use 2K for added durability but make sure you know what safety precautions are required. It is dangerous stuff. Chris
