Re: 5 x 5 Rally Wheels for Full Size Buick -- any replicas?
- Which is what I did first, and then had one finned cap pop off into oblivion. Considering at the time they were as scarce as hen's teeth and cost me close to $100 a pop (!) I wasn't about to lose another one, so I got a die grinder and whittled the hole out a bit. Then touched up the bare spot with anti-rust paint and shellacked the outer ring so the chrome wouldn't chip out. So far it's worked, and it's been 21 years since I put on those rims.
