The 150 and 210 small caps were all brass and flash chrome plated. The insert was painted winter white.

The same color the belair side trim insert was painted. Also the same on the lower paint dividers. This is spec but the color varied from this over the production run, and some pcs look almost white. But not because the color spec changed.

Ok ty for the info guys.the brass color was a mystery.for now i will leave one side of the car with the milky ring and the other all chrome.the white ring has aged and is about 90% white with 10% chrome showing.

White? Milky? Sure you weren't just polishing a bit too hard?

I picked up a new set at a swap meet earlier this year. They weren't terribly expensive, think I paid $130 for the set. The white was already painted and nothin like new chrome!
