Whitewall Experiment

Thought I would try kbrockets Whitewall trick.
Cleaned the tire with some acetone.
Wiped her clean with a clean lint free cloth.
White Scuff Shoe Polish.
Two coats as it sits.
What ya thunk? This will be going on a Manco T-Bird project.

We'll see. I think a few more coats and call it done.
With the rims and tires done like that, what color for the bike? I am leaning towards the old Chevy light blue. Kinda of metalic. Using the all white 5 hp Briggs.

How about 1964 Chevrolet Impala Azure Aqua? This color looks great with white.

My Tote Gote Nova is a similar color.

Chrome Ape Hangers and chrome fenders.....
That aqua is kinda what I was thinking. Just wasn't sure it the red rims would look goofy.
The clutch cover is a 1958 Ohio licience plate. Year I was born. Daaaaaark blue.White lettering.
This is fixin to turn into a project log.

I saw a Used Car Dealer once use black shoe ploish to make the tyres look new, sneaky, but it looks good
