    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
