    Many years ago I rescued a Z28 wheel from the junkyard - it was a rusted paint crusted mess.
    It's been laying around my backyard for 20 years. It's almost gone in the garbage a few of times.
    Since I needed a spare wheel, I decided to drop it off at Arizona Powder Coat for sand blasting and powder coat.
    (Wish I had a "before" picture as it now looks like a new wheel.)
    So, light gray powder coat, primer, OER K89310 paint and a Cooper Cobra tire and I'm good to go.
    (Unfotunately I find that 73 wheels are supposed to be black on the inside - oops.)
    I'll pull the wheels off the Camaro (date code from 77) and do the same to them.

    Where did the black on the inside info come from? Nice looking wheels!

    That is a late build color, the early 73 appear to be gray.

    My Camaro is a 05D build. I'm not bothered by the color as it will never be "judged". The spare is a K13 8 15 wheel. The wheels on the car are from 77. I like the gray powder coat.
