I seem to remember a while back reading that you could buy the cheapish GM headlight bezels from ebay (they look to be OEM style satin silver w/ chrome trim). And the silver paint could be removed with thinner to leave the whole piece chrome? I did some searching and can't seem to come up with the original thread.

Can someone confirm this, or help locate where it was originally posted?

I am looking at these:

It looks like that might be the case with these, as they seem to be plated all over, considering how the back of each of them looks.

Is this the thread?

I remember the center caps on my '86 GMC Sierra being that way. I put them in the dishwasher to clean them up, and the wash cycle took all the paint off of them.
They were beautiful!

Yes, that's the thread! Thank you! I might try my center caps too. Good idea!

Oh yeah, I forgot you had the rally wheels too. That was an accidental "Pro tip". LOL
