    TR6 OEM or NOS aluminum trim rings

    I need some aluminum trim rings for my TR6. I am restoring my TR6 and need some aluminum trim rings in new condition.

    I have some original TR6 trim rings but they are not "new" and most of them would require a good polishing to get out any surface scratches. If interested I could take some pics for you.

    Thanks for your offer, but I am trying to locate ones in new condition with the anodized finish still in tact. I guess I am one of the few who prefer aluminum. The anodized finish has worn off one of my trim rings quite a bit, and it is a pain to always polish it just so that it somewhat matches the other rings.

    I have a set of 4 rims that came with the car when I bought it 21 years ago. It has wire wheels. May have been a conversion. They look like new and have been sitting in my cellar for lo those many years. I am about as far from Washington State as you can get - SW CT. I can take pictures if you wish.

    They have some light surface scratches from being stacked that could be buffed out but one rimRim2.jpg has a couple of deeper scratches that might also be buffed out. Picture herewith. (Close-up picture would not upload).

    Sorry for the delayed response. Thanks for sending the pics. Are you sure these are aluminum? I have a set now with the anodized finish, but once they are scratched, there is not much you can do.

    A very strong magnet would not stick to the shiny side of these but did stick to the back side. How can I tell if these are aluminum?

    I posted your question on the forum. The aluminum has a satin, brushed aluminum finish. One person mentioned using th Mohr hardness test by making a small scratch on the back, but the finish is what stands out the most to me.
