I have a set of new circle racing kidney beans and a late set of halibrand aluminum wheels. Anyone have tips on how to make them look older/patina'd. Any tips or tricks will be appreciated. Before all the blasting starts my deuce started life as a high end street rod, stainless independent front end, sky high ride with air conditioning, every piece of billet that you could bolt on. Beautiful viper red paint with the ugliest set of flames you can imagine.I split, drilled and filled a set of original bones, drilled the dropped axle, lowered it dramatically and have been making the car as traditional as possible. I have done all the work in my 1 car garage myself.I love the look of halibrands but since I am not selling a kidney for a set of magnesium wheels I went with what I could afford.
