If a floating pin setup makes noise, something is very wrong with the machine work.

The Gibbs made a huge improvement. Not entirely free of oxidation but they seem to be getting better every day.

Gibbs seems to be helping...which is great because it saves me some manual labor!

Where do you guys recommend advertising these wheels for sale? I'd like to avoid Ebay. Wish we had a classifieds section on CRG....

I went through about a quarter can to do all four of mine, so it actually coats pretty well! Spray it on, let it sit for a few, and wipe it with a small cloth to distribute it, like you would a wood stain.

Beautiful weather in MI today, so I gave the wheels a really good once-over with the Gibbs and will wait a few days as directed to see what happens to the white areas.

I'm leaning toward hitting the outside machined lip with a very fine scotchbrite to bring out the original machined finish. What do you guys think?

To address an earlier question - sorry 69Z28-RS, I missed it the first time around. I will be selling or trading these to someone who can use them, since I have no cars with a 5-on-5 bolt pattern. I briefly considered modifying one of my first-gen Camaros to 5-on-5 but I think these wheels are too wide to fit anyway.

Thanks guys. The Gibbs helped a lot with the appearance but some of the white staining is still there. What do you recommend using on that?

Here are some pics. The backspacing is right around 4 3/16" Interestingly they are all dated within three days of each other. How do I clean these without affecting the finish?

Hi folks,

I ended up making a deal on a set of four 15x8.5" magnesium Torq Thrust Ds today. They are NOS and have some very light white staining starting in areas, which I assume is the onset of corrosion. They are all dated within a few days of each other, late 1968. Unfortunately the bolt circle is 5 on 5" so they can't easily work on my first-gen Z/28. I would guess these are among the best preserved mag TT-Ds.

Can anyone give me an idea of what these might be worth? They will either be garage art for me, or I will sell/trade them to someone who needs them for an early Mustang, or ?
