    Pics of Howards 67S wheels needed

    Earl or Howard,

    Can you please post for general viewing the outcome of Harvey's work on the 67S's wheels? Need some closeups.

    I know that several listers have wheels that need to be redone, and there is a "marked" difference between Al's and Harvey's work, particularly with respect to the 67S wheel, where so much of the rim is actually unpolished, and just rough and anodized (as they came from the factory).

    Though I have seen them personally, I know several listers need to see Harvey's work to see for themselves the difference's on the 67s wheel.

    Thanks!!

    Eric

    I'd like to see the pictures too. Several people have told me that it's much harder to get brake dust off of the rough finished wheels. Something to consider if you'll be driving your car a lot.

    Comments from people who own these wheels?

    Here is a pic of Harveys work on a regular 6x15 from a 1970. Frosted with dropped paint lines, Harvey claims this to be his hybrid RSR finish. I like it.

    Alan,

    I have frosted RSR's from Harvey on one of my cars, and they cleanup fine with PS21.

    I am one of them. I plan on refinishing some flat 6's to look like 67S's

    Thanks

    Eric,

    I just spoke with Howard. His 67S is in a storage unit right now. As soon as he or I get a chance we will post some pics for you.

    Looks like I'll be chasing Howard on skinny's next time I see him! (hopefully with appropriate wheels!, these 14's gotta go...!).
