Thanks for all the information.
I spoke with the company that has done the powder coating of my engine tin and they feel sure they can give it the “brushed stainless” look. I like that option. In the mean time I have painted the chrome section red like the body color.
I have ordered the 8 spoke EMPI chorme wheels and I am thinking of having the spokes powdered coated red like the body. If I do that then I’ll have the steering wheel done at the same time.
