Heartbeat City used to have refurbished ones for @ $200 ea

Check with our site sponsor 'Ground Up' they should have them for @ $100 or so.
Ricks and the others also usually carry them.
The newer ones have a different clip style, but the outer bead looks pretty close to the originals.

I have a few street sets that I use for most driving. Then one nice set of originals wrapped up for the 'someday' car show needs...

Hey thanks guys. I will call Heartbeat city tomorrow and see if they have what I'm looking for. Wheel Vintiques as far as i saw do not have the correct inner lip. But maybe I'm wrong. Anyone know.

I truthfully wouldn't buy Five dollar bills from Jim if he was selling them for $1
Make sure you know EXACTLY what he is going to send you and get it in writting (send an email and save his response) before giving CC or sending money - if you find him hard to deal with 'before' he has your money, wait 'til you try 'after' he does
He's very proud of everything he sells - your reaction/results may differ

Doug, you are looking for these! http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Parts...1%7C240%3A1318

You have to remember the flat lipped edge was only on the 14x6. All the 14x7 rings had a different edge treatment.

Re: Who sells correct repo 14x7 trim rings for 69 rally wheels

Kevin wouldn't that trim ring listed on e-bay just be for the SS wheel and not the rally wheel? I thought all of the Rally wheel trim rings had the inner turned up lip where it meets the inner part of the steel wheel? And yes I'm going to buy with extreme caution. You really need the seller to open the box and measure. Thanks all.

Doug, you have to read this too! Pay close attention to the part numbers, the quote from the parts manual and the conclusion at the end of page 4

Re: Who sells correct repo 14x7 trim rings for 69 rally wheels

Along these lines... my Camaro still has the orignal 14x7 wheels and rings. The rings need a good buff and some dings knocked out.

Anyone know of a place that would do this work?

Steve, stainless is easy to buff once you've practiced! You can do it yourself! If the dings are under the supports, then that is tricky! I have always wanted to try that. I have collected a bunch of scraped trim rings to practice on, but have not had the time.

Re: Who sells correct repo 14x7 trim rings for 69 rally wheels

Doug, I just read that ebay add again. Those are the correct shape and size, but they are chrome plated over steel. The originals are just buffed stainless steel. These would be too shiney for the original look of cross hatched buffing. But the look is up to you.
