    wheel color

    After trying several different shades on my red '89 and hating them all, I finally bit the bullet and stripped and polished them. A big job and much work, but they look great now.

    For a '95 you have to substitute '89 or '90 center caps which are stainless steel. They can be polished just like the alum wheels.

    My memory could be failing, but I'm almost positive that early center caps will NOT fit late style wheels becaust the center opening on the early wheels is bigger.

    You could be right about the center cap sizes, I don't know. Perhaps only the early wheels can be polished all over then. Alsa Corp makes Killer cans of Chrome paint, that is virtually indistinguishable from chrome plate. Expensive but very nice. I considered doing the wheels with it, but finally opted for the route costing only time and energy.
