Johns car looks fantastic and must be better then when it was new, I know that I have said it before but you cannot see the amount of work in this car by just looking over it and as for the wheels, well I suppose we would all love our wheels to look as good as Johns but you just cannot always justify the expense.
The OE Rostyles had a grey laquer / sealant applied in the well of the rim to seal the rivets to make the wheel airtight. Does anyone know what this sealant was / is, and if it is still available, or nominate a suitable alternative?

I know I am being a bit long winded sorry I had two more wheels done solely for the purpose of explaining the process it has only been 9 months to get the rechroming done
I have played with sealants but you have to be careful on the safety angle recommending a product the wheels I have done haven't lost any pressure in 12 months even when I do the article I cant recommend what I have used as it was not intended for purpose
I am in talks with a chroming company as we speak in Bristol, they charge £380+vat to re-chrome your rostyle wheels. This price includes - 1- split the rims and rejoin them. 2 - re-chrome the 2 parts of the wheels. 3 - paint the black inserts in. They are not a commercial platers they are a chrome restorer and take there time to get your chrome looking perfect.
Any questions please get in touch and full details will be posted soon
