I understand that the rear rims were actually galvanized and not painted. I see some of the guys are using a dull aluminum paint on the rims for a close color match. I have seen spray cans of cold galvanize in the welding supply shops used for coating over weld repairs. I haven't tried the stuff but it might be worth looking in to. I would try to mount the wheel on a couple of roller stands like those used for the out feed side of a table. Then have someone slowly turn the wheel while you keep the spray can directed as necessary.

Farmer Brown,

After cleaning my rear wheels up on my B, I used a can of Rustoleum "Stainless Steel" in an aerosol can. Picked it up in Home Depot. Pretty tall can, so I had plenty for both wheels. I was pretty impressed the way it came out when I stood the newly painted wheel next to the other that wasn't done yet. Darn near matched the old galvanized look! Can't tell ya how it's gonna last yet, I only just got the new engine fired and haven't had it out yet... Might be somthin' to try..... Steve B.
