You did the same thing I did with the safety wire around the wheel. I don't know what you used but I stripped the insulation off a piece black wire from a chunk of 14ga romex cable (house wiring).

Jeff,
Nice colour on the wheels.
Is that a satin dark grey? Any more detail on the paint colour? (I'm thinking ahead).

Cheers!
Glen

Think the wheels are flat black powder coat. Craig may know as this was done pre-Bill.

My plan, CRAZY!
Going to sand blast the face of the wheels and make the centers gold so the earlier race car comes out.
Here is an example CSX3028, this is the look I will chase...
On my Gold car the wheels are oiled Magnesium so brake dust, oil and oxidation in color.

Use CRC Gasket remover to strip powdercoat... no sandblasting !!

Great job Jeff!

Patrick - you could do that too. Gold centres on your wheels with beige? Nice
