Jtruck center caps

My dumba** bought what I believe are the 2 j truck caps, they have the black lines around the ‘Jeep’. I will add pics. They are in pretty good shape. I do not know if I overpaid for them, I did buy them on eBay (insert groan) for $99. I would like to break even if possible. Happy to trade for 85 wag center caps.

I have a couple of Waggy center caps I'd trade. I think they are in similar condition. I can get some pics this weekend.

waggy

you did not pay too much
and I have seen those in NOS form with pits
it is the poor quality metal under the chrome
"pot metal" it corrodes from the inside out, even indoors.

with some 000 or 0000 steel wool
with some chrome polish
those things will shine like new

and a good ole' tuff Bounty paper towel buffs them as good as anything
after using the polish and steel wool

washing them first with an S.O.S. or Brillo
soap pad works wonders too.....dry, then use chrome polish, buff

Dave - do you take the same approach for all the chrome? I have got a long way to go on all my cargo trim. I am not terrible worried about the center caps as they will be powder chromed. My wheels are unfortunately beyond redemption.

Sorry it is taking some time to get pics of the center caps I have. It is Arctic cold right now and I haven’t had a chance to get to them in my unheated storage.

Click on the little arrow on the lower right, then choose the BBCode, choose your size (I used 1024x768), copy the link, and paste it directly into the post.
I delete all the URL junk in the link it to keep it clean:

I’ve got two sets of caps. One set is in pretty good shape and will clean up well and has wider spaced ribs. The second is a little rough with more pitting and has the narrow spaced ribs.

Pics don’t seem to be working. Message me and I can send you pics.
