HUB CAP RESTORATION

Recommended Posts

I just purchase these caps for my '69 Impala. I've had the Rallys on the car since I purchase it back in 2004 and I thought I would change it up. They are in really nice shape, but there is some minor scratches and the black painted sections are faded. Any suggestions of a company that can restore them back ? 

 

Thanks !

Little bit of trivia:  That '69 Caprice is parked in front of Mission San Diego de Alcala in Mission Valley/San Diego.  Still looks just like that if you wanted to re-create the photo.  I believe Chevrolet was taking pictures throughout San Diego in that time frame, one ad photo was taken in my in-laws' driveway in Point Loma but I have never seen the resulting ad.  Great looking Caprice by the way.  SMB

STEVE POLLARD ,

 Check for a supplier that sells decals that you paste over the faded paint.

 I bought a set for my 56 Belair but they are a real PITA to install.

I do not know a company that can fix your problem.

I knew a man who owned a Furniture Store and they used to polish glass to remove scratches.

I assume glass is softer than SS  Below is something I took off the internet.

I would do more checking about glass polish before trying it.

Beautiful car you own by the way.

 

Windolene is made for cleaning glass windows and has a mild abrasive in it. ... The Autoglym polish is also mild abrasive. Must say that I never fully removed the scratches I had (seagull poo that must have had sand in it) but you can improve matters.

Steve Google "French Lake Auto Parts Minneapolis MN. Ask for the owner and tell him you need stainless steel buffed ect. He has a excellent guy . Ive done business with him and he is a standup guy.  I don't have his name or number. He has other great reference's on this site.
