I got a set of faded gold 72 spoke daytons. I tried to sell them when they were gold but couldnt get anything for them..so i said screw it prepped and painted one high build black. i have left it out in the weather and rain for over a month now..paint is not peeling or flaking. but i did prep it really good.
they do not come with the impala knockoffs. i got some beat up gold dayton ones pictured. make offers or trades.

Damn I turned a set of solid gold 72 spokes back into chrome. It was a gang of work but it worked. I used Mothers polish and had to shines each spoke individually. The hub is the hardest parts but the dish, spokes and nipples come out nice, that gold comes right off. I will post pics.

yeah they were one of the sweetest sets of daytons I ever owned but they were ALL gold and you know me I dont like gold so I tested one by polishing the dish on the back side, the gold started polishing off like nothin so I tried it on the spokes and nipples and it came right off there too. :0
