Garth Webb (Webber Chassis) next door is apparently getting a CNC mill that will be able to handle these dinky wheels...

I was thinking I'd put the wheel on an indexing table on the mill to engine turn them. I think I'm leaning more towards the beige/brushed option at this point, mostly from a labour perspective.

But for the refinish I vote brushed/dark gray insets :)


Currency towards some big black steelies you mean :D

I like RAL 1019 GRAY BEIGE with your paint colour because it's on a van.

I've been focusing on getting the '32 ready... my parents are leaving saturday for Knoxville in it. Now that that's out of the way, I'm hoping to get back on the wheels. They're pretty much ready, just a bit more time with the scotchbrite disc and some final cleanup, then taping!
