'Rat look' wheel hubs?

The clean up continues with the wheels today. I took of the old and i would guess by their condition, original, wheel hubs and ground off the old paint and rust. End result was a kind of 'scabby' or as they say in VW circles 'rat look' which i quite liked. May originally replace with some nice chrome baby moon hub caps, but quite pleased i have managed to retain the original bits of tin. (See below) All it cost me was a can of radiator paint and wire wool. Don't know if they look silly all freshly painted on such a tatty body? Looks a bit like the nerdy wimp kid with brand new trainers!
