    How would one abtain a template for the Avanti hub cap?..........In other words something to lay on the cap to cover the spokes and paint the other areas......I have seen this done for many yrs and the thought of masking all the areas on all four caps is not a fond thought.
    Any suggestions?

    There is no masking template I'm aware of. 3M fine line tape (blue) and 3M masking tape (green).

        That is not going to work for the area between the simulated "Mag spokes", they were Silver, and no Decals exist for them, only for the small Black ovals at the outer edge, and the center Circle.

        The five or Six cars that exist with Black paint over the Silver, were hand masked and hand painted.
        New wheel Covers ARE available.

            They would know what to use, any Automotive Enamel will be fine. Most common probably is PPG Single Stage Acrylic Enamel in semi-gloss Black like the '70's Mopar or GM Hood trim paint.

              Strip them first, use the 3M fine line tape, and use an Etch Primer first!! before applying paint. After the etch primer, let it flash for 5-10 minutes, then use any spray bomb of the color, use light coats! peel the tape off while still wet.
