    Ended up getting my rims re-done and they look so great. I am happy i decided to get them done. getting my spare tire rim and jack stand powder coated orange for the trunk as well. I cant wait for spring time to drive her again. I am getting the muscle car itch... :cool: 28417866_2084983384847053_532441554_o.jpg 28312882_2084983398180385_261828273_o.jpg fullsizeoutput_168a.jpeg

    Where did you get your rims redone? I am also in the Twin Cities (Eagan) and want to change mine from black to silver just like yours. Can I ask how much $$ per wheel? Any issues with the Z28 cap fitting? I heard from one guy that they had the insert area machined and it was bigger than what the caps were and he had to use an O-ring to make them fit. Thanks for any info!

    Hi John. Got them done at Twin City Wheel Repair in White Bear Lake. It was $700 for all 4. He put a clear coat over them. The center caps did not fit snug before and fit a little tighter now so i think the clear coat added a little bit. He did an excellent job and was a pleasure to work with. He knows what he is doing for sure.

    Gave her a wash over the weekend and cleaned the blue off of the new tires. I really like the white text tires and the rims turned out and look great on the car. Can't wait for summer. Leaf springs getting installed next week over spring break :) fullsizeoutput_171c.jpeg 5og+f7+yRIyljkMmyQtR7g.jpg
