Original FORD Hat Rims were zinc plated. Cadmium was a silver-blue plating. Many fellas use a metallic or aluminum shade of paint and I did too at one time until I found out after two years it dulls and will rub off with your thumb. It was then I discovered a special wheel paint sold by IH/CASE called SILVER ARGENT. I did two sets of hat rims with it and it has held up well after 10 years.
