Plastic "Mag" Wheels

BIG RED has gotten a scratch on one of her 20" wheels. They are some sort of chrome plated plastic wheels that came OEM on her. The scratch has scraped the plating off and I can see the ivory colored plastic. It is a small scratch but I don't know how to fix it. Has anyone else experienced this and if so, what did you do about it?

If it's a small scratch, you can fill it with Testor's Model Masters Chrome enamel model paint. You can find it at most hobby stores. This paint is almost like liquid chrome, and very durable.

If it's a large scratch, you're pretty mutch out of luck. eBay for a replacement.

Thanks TXHEMI, I will try the Testors this week and let you know how it worked. It is only a small scratch. Maybe 1" long and about 1/16" wide, but it sure made me sick when I saw it. We sure love our trucks, don't we!!!!

YES WE DO! Make sure you stir the bottle with a toothpick or somthing. Testors seperates while sitting on the shelf. The nice thing is that since it's enamel, it will blend the edges and almost make the scratch disapear.

No problem. Comes from building scale models for years because I couldn't afford real toys on my Air FOrce Budget! I do have an awesome model collection though!

MOPARS! Oh, and a couple of damn Monte Carlos, (TJHEMI is a Dale Jr. fan)

One of my best is a Little Red Express with a transplanted 426.
