I'd seen lots of pictures of vintage vans with ever so fancy white walled tyres, coloured rims and bedazzled hubcaps.
Unfortunately the budget for my dream reno is practically zero at this point so I had to make do with what I had. Sandpaper and paint and 3 hubcaps in fairly good condition which I purchased on ebay a few months ago. The existing hubcaps were 9.5" in diameter. The ones I purchased were advertised as 9.5" but are probably 9.7" and unfortunately they are too big.
When I got to sanding down the rims, I found they were extremely rusty and that rust had been painted over previously.
It would have taken me hours to sand them back to raw metal.
Enter "Rustguard" which I left overnight to dry. The next morning . . . . it rained
