    Anyone know of a business who can remove old flaking, peeling and pitting chrome and redo them to like new again?

    Maybe so on any aftermarket hub, but I have stock Dana/Spicer D60 hub caps I want to rechrome. :(

    Not the Spicer 60 hubs. If you can find them new, snatch them up as they are ultra-super rare.

    Nvrenuf and tarussell are two guys I know that have them brand new in the box.

    I watched one hub assembly with a bright yellow dial on eBay sell for over $250. Yes, ONE hub assembly, not two.

    If you take them apart any chrome shop should be able to do it. Just depends on who and where on the cost.

    Yep, rare enough that if you find them on eBay, expect to spend around $150-175 for a pair, USED.

    We should have purchased every set they had when we had the chance......
    Spicer manual hubs have no equal --- if they are not enough than slugs are the only option.
