OK, I "trust" you guys/gals. With the new wheels on. I HAVE TO paint the drums!!! What color were they originally? What other colors have you seen that look good? Currently I have Canary yellow drums on the rear, and brownish black on the front :(

I have original styled steel wheels and I decided to paint my drums the same color as the engine. That Ford blue really looks good, I have a pic of it somewhere I'll try and send to you.

Originally the drums were the natural cast color, but if the car came with wheels that let the drum show, i.e. styled steels, the face of the drums was painted black.

High temp Flat black for gas grills works great! Did it two years ago on the pickup and it has not needed to be repainted!

I used Duplicolor 1200 F flat black and baked them in the oven at 400 F for 2 hours to cure the paint. SWMBO thought I was crazy.
