Just got my Pony Wheel back from Dallas Mustang
Dare anyone to find a nicer lookin wheel
got rid of the cheap looking plastic and had Kenny at Dallas Mustang put real walnut on it.
Best lookin wheel for 65 66 Mustang Ive seen any place before. Also had it rechromed at www.chromecityplating.com
by Duane less than 80 bucks also fine work.
Much nicer than factory
look here www.valkyrie.net/~wayne50f1/page2.htm

what color is your interior? Specifically the cream colored portion of your seats? I am trying to decide for sure on the color combo for my vert and I like that cream color alot.

the white covers are old and a bit brittle, its just that they are old covers and probably a bit sun dyed, ive repainted the door metal with what was supposed to be correct white. the lighting or reflection of light in the picture makes the colors less accurate....standard white for 1965

How did the brushed area on the face of the spokes turn out? As new or more/less smooth than the original brush effect?

this is not for a car to be judged in concurs shows, the walnut wood will cost points and so will the loss of brushed markings, i knew this before hand, and i like the look better.

That looks great. I am restoring a '66 for my SWMBO that has a Pony interior. Think I will give Dallas a try. How long did it take after you sent them the already chromed core? Appreciate the info.

My only bit on (unsolicited) advice would be to add a coat of UV protective polyurethane to the wood, especially if the car sees a lot of drive time.
The original wheels cracked and separated most often at the 9 o'clock position because of sun exposure through the driver's door window.
My only concern would be that the wood finish will deteriorate over time in the sun, and you'll have to then refinish it (a constant problem on boats). If you add the UV, it should hold up much longer. Dickson

it took Kenny about 6 wks he was in the hospital at the time and normally takes 2 or 3 weeks for the wood job

im using TUNG OIL instead of urethane, it keeps the wood from drying out
its used on furniture and guns for the same reason, and ill wipe a coat or two on it couple times a year as needed
