You guys always have Wildcat /Formula Five/ Road wheels on the Rivieras...I'd like to put some Turbines on my Wildcat!  

Any out there?

Thanks, 

Ted

Ted, here are my goods all restored with stud mounts all in place. Double chrome two bar spinners NEW center caps. Custom made center caps with the Wild cat emblem. original or custom restoration of turbines and emblems. Too much to describe in print. Call me 443.386.7356. Eastern standard time. Powder coat colors option. Some like to match the webs of the turbine with the color of their  car.

I really like the red center medallion!

NC, the red Buick emblem is from a 1958 Buick wheel cover. My 63 Riv is red so I thought the idea  would be something different. 
Thank you for the compliment.

If you've got the resources, have your supplier make some caps, both '63 and '64, up in some body colors with the chrome tri-shield and R. Color match some of the webs on the turbines to the colors of the center caps.  Go WILD!

Ed, outstanding ideas! Your design creations are really good. Powder coating the vanes and webs, color thr background of the emblems to match the car could keep a man busy!

You don't have anything else to do.  Get off your LZ butt and make a contribution to something.  😎😁

Ed, just purchased a chrome kit you can do at home. I’ve found the product to have potential as a substitute for chrome plating. I will say the process is sophisticated and requires attention to detail at the highest level for me. I have a 63 console shift mount that needs a new chrome finish. I’ll show a before and after pic when I complete the finish.
