Ray of 1917 Buick fame, being computer illiterate I set him up with the Buick car club. He contacted Buick owners of that vintage and scored a few parts he needed. Anyway typically the old wood wheels are shot and the one guy said he has new ones made, if you hit a curb with and old rickety wheel its toast. His wheels were solid though so I used the paint stripper and scrapers, sanded them down smooth, a mild stain color to give them an aged look and them two coats of acrylic urethane and they came out nice the way he wanted them to be. Linseed oil would be a PIA, always need re-coating and linseed oil dripping all over the place on the tires, etc. I spent three weeks refinishing those wheels for him !

 Yes, it was common to soak the wheels in water to tighten them up. There are many pictures around showing people doing just that.

I learned you could get the wheels in natural wood and they would use a linseed oil finish, on the 1917 Buick wheels ( they were painted black ) we clear coated them with acrylic urethane, they didn't have any good finish coatings back then. They brush painted the bodies with a varnish paint and it was a bottle neck on the production line with the drying time.

You ain't been around much lately Rene, we all get busy with this and that but we have a good little group of Cadillac Rednecks here. Own a Cadillac, can you turn wrenches and drink beer ? C'mon down and join CISO, we'll break your balls and get you one of them there Cadillac ROTY-A's if you are worthy. This is a Cadillac car club, it ain't no social club for sissies. Its a team effort here, share your knowledge and your projects Cadillac or otherwise, it all gas, oil, wrenches, a few gaskets and some busted knuckles. ( and a few beers ).

I spilled the beans, just try to act surprised when they get you, Gareth didn't have a clue and his video is the benchmark, we'll never top that one.  I'll get some new ROTY-A's done for next year.
