Looks surprisingly good for a felt pen fix! When I had to fix mine I just broke out the ol' paint set and then varnished them twice. Worked good for me.

I've never heard of using a sharpie on center caps, what will keep it from washing off? I'm planning on repainting the center caps on my '79 CDV now that I have new original spec WW tires, but I have to replace two of them first, somene put them back on with a screw through the middle, can you believe that?


BTW: whats with the blackwalls... that's a no no.
