In christmas break, I did some low budget DIY.
Masking, sanding, spray painting.

I bought a couple spray can -Ford original white- at the PepBoys and it worked great.
Now the wheel cap color match to the interior. :)

What a GREAT idea! They give it a REAL RETRO look. Thanks for sharing!

Nice, I did that to an Integra way back when - great contrast colors too

Nice, but I'd add a body-color stripe to them as well to tie things together. RR did something similar back in the day - the broad stripe was body color and the thin (called a character line, iirc) was interior color.

Nice touch to make your 500 unique.

Almost looks as if it should have come that way. Ivory interior with light exterior: white wheel covers. I often think about having my rims painted white and adding the red center caps but these projects never come out looking the way I want them to.

I absolutely love that minty green color and the white caps really set it off!! Great job!!

I think the addition of a white lower side stripe would complement it nicely as well.
