I am not aware of anyone restoring the original pressed in type wheels or the riveted ones for that matter . Craig Conley has told me in the past that it was because of liability. Also typically you lose the rim or the center during disassembly. They cut the rim to get the center or break out the center to get to save the rim. You typically have to have two sets to end up with 4 good centers and 4 good rims . The repro centers that Conley makes look great and you could probably short cut it by using the original rims and repro centers. Craig Conley restores the 69 wheels if you want to call it that . He reuses and restores the center and re attaches it to a modern different appearing DOT approved rim . He does a good job but they look different. He uses epoxy like original but instead of rivets he uses threaded Allen headed cap screws. The wheels don't end up looking as good as the current repros (not Craigs because his use cap screws also) because the repros use rivets the last time I checked . He does not do the pressed in only wheels.
