OK.  I FINALLY got around to painting the center of my Magstars!  Needless to say, I'm thrilled with the results, as I wanted my Magstars to look as correct as possible, given that my car is an early one.  Chug a Lug

Here's what I used - both can be bought at Autozone; which makes them easily accessible!



I prepped each wheel first by taping off the chrome edge of the wheel that meets the inner ring to be painted.  I also, used aluminum foil to ensure no over spray.  Here's a picture of the wheel before I started and after my prep:




I sprayed two coats onto the wheel center and then used a rag with the stripper to take the fresh paint off the finished places on the spokes.  Note:  I did try to use paint thinner to remove the paint, but the paint wouldn't budge.  And, I SWEAR by this particular stripper, as it works fantastic on anything I've wanted to strip.  The key is patience, as the process of painting and stripping can take some time, but it's totally worth it, IMO.

Here's a pic after I painted the center and wiped off the paint (again, I didn't tape off anything but the chrome ring and the tire).


Here's a side by side shot - the wheel on the left has been painted, and the wheel on the right has not.  Please note - this picture does NOT do justice to the color difference.  The color change is subtle, but extremely impressive, and it totally matches the vintage pictures I've seen of the original wheels.  I used multiple vintage pictures to get the best color match possible.


And here's a pic of the final product fully mounted.  Here, you can see more of the color change.  Good stuff!  Chug a Lug

Thanks Jeff, and thanks for helping with the final few details.  My wife also wanted to thank you for taking the time to help her understand some of the finer points of concours.

Glad you guys liked the photos. I almost didn't go, just a lot of things to get ready for in October, but I talked to Tim late Friday and made an 11th hour decision to make the trip. Would have been kicking myself if I had found out later that 67 Mustang racer had been there and I missed it, being the old race car nut that I am.

Yes, 2112, As for the hosting site, it used to be Picasa, then Google revised it somewhat and renamed it Google Photos. Brant turned me on to Picasa originally, and I've had no problems with it or Google Photos (mainly problems with my old slow computer....)

Thanks,
Dave
