    NEW PICS AT END OF THREAD

    ok.. so i'm in the process of stripping off the nasty flat black off my 89 CRX wheels.... i still have to sand, primer and repaint in an OEM silver color.. i'm wondering what these would look like polished.. but if that, i couldnt use the center cap because its plastic.. here are before and stripped pictures.. i wasnt planning on it stripping off the original silver too.. oh well...

    I'd go with a flat silver and a non-gloss clear coat?

    idk... it might look OEM...

    Well, I didn't think so either, but it's an option in your User CP, so I went ahead and threw one in there..
