Separate names with a comma.
I stand corrected.
Learn something new every day.
That is what I love here, learn new stuff every day. Plus the scintillating conversations that arise as well. :bart:
Not sure about "scintillating"...but we do oscillating pretty well... :basketcase:
I can be scintillating at times
Both options were called "Road Wheels"...correct? So...if one car was coded to run Rallyes' and one was coded to run Mag 500's how was it possible to even view the red stripe through such a narrow opening?
You can definitely see it through the road wheels. The slits are right up against the drums. Doubtful on the Rallyes...
WOW 12K posts, blabber fingers
As they say, it takes one to know one! :jester:
Alright lets see a photo back in the day of what this looks like...I want to see a red drum/s gleaming through the wheel opening/s.
Google is your friend...
Unable to find any articles on the specifics of red paint identifiers applied to the brake drums on these cars.
How many of you have your drums painted per the factory sheet? Specifically...all who own the 70 model year.
:huh: Not sure what OEM was, but mine ('69) are black.
The only Road Runner that I have that is coded for road wheels is my '75 and it has the 2" red stripe on the rear drums. The ft has disc. My 69, 71, and 80 all had steel wheels and the drums do not have the red stripe around the drums.
Sounds like nothing is a standard with the RED stripe. If these cars were in a judging "points" style competition...would the RED stripe determine a winner? Just a thought...
Hi guys. Think I will paint mine this winter. Found this link that mentions cars built after 31 Jan 1969?
Just finished cleaning and painting a set of road wheels and the centers are stainless steel welded to a steel rim and painted semi gloss. The owner actually has 4 real nice trim rings for them also. They should look better than my cop rims
A nice set of original 69 trim rings is a very rare item indeed. This is the only year that they attach to outer most part of the rim.
