Here's one that came off my '53's spare, way back when. Now it helps decorate my garage.

Kevinski A friend from pennsylvania said they used to paint all their chrome with tire paint for the salty winter months-then wash it off in the spring I think with gasoline.

The 55.1 I owned from 89-92 had two painted caps with the Bowtie emblem in blue. They were light gray.

We blast with glass or white sand and then use a "non porous" primer. Using this primer alone on glass window painted on signs makes them last for years. IIRC Tremco and Rustoleum have the non porous primers but do a search.

At one time, a dealer was selling the black "chevrolet" letter stickers. That would be a lot of hand painting otherwise.

I used a lot of painted items on my 53, hood strip, grill, both bumpers, interior as well but I did use stainless hubcaps. My truck did have two or maybe three painted hubcaps when I purchased the truck but they were not identical.
