     Not on any of the 9 originals I have at the moment.

Can you advise how they are finished? Are they a non polished aluminum or chrome finish? Tks.

Working on the wheels. We plan to respray the coves on the front of the wheels; got the incorrect black paint off the back. Blocking car and will shoot one more primer coat and block that.
