Big thanks to forum member bigbodybowtie for these hubcaps! It makes a huge differece in the car's appearence and distracts attention from the damages.





I didn't clean the car or the caps yet so it's a bit messy.. Will that dent in the front quarter pop out ok? I also put a strip of electrical tape ontop of the headlights for the smooth look the SS has.

Before.


The rear quarter was pushed in pretty good when I got it but it's popped out now... how would I remove the white without scratching the paint to hell?

Thanks for looking...

Nice hubcaps! they are really classy! Been looking for a set of these too!

The dent in the fender is a nasty one. It looks like it has a nasty sharp edge....usually, dents which don't have shapr edges, can be popped back...

Go see a dent wizard, they can do a lot for you.

RYS, I was thinking you wanted the caps with CAPRICE in the middle? Cuz I have 6 of those caps!!!

looks cool, I like the whitewalls out.

about that dent, you will have to remove the wheel well to push it out, thats if it will.

And for those scratches, polish polish polish! Use a polish that's not too harsh though so you don't risk going down to the primer.

I got a set that's taking up space. Caprice Freak (or anyone else) wants them pay me the shipping and they're yours (just remember they were used and if you're expecting mint they ain't them).

I did want those. There was a misunderstanding with the seller... oh well I'm still happy!

Capricefreak, the ones they are talking about with "Caprice" in the middle are chrome with black centers.
