You can get re-pops at National Parts Depot. Otherwise, swap meets, ebay, craigslist, the usual. 

Bearing Burners Swap Meet is coming up at the end of the month. Good possibility to find some there.

Yup, been attending it for years. Its usually in the spring, but with this year's monsoon it looks like they've rescheduled it. It use to be at the GM Tech Center in Warren. Now it's moved to the Knight of Columbus picnic grounds in Shelby

I saw it - been traveling all week all week for work. 14 X 6 are standard wheel sizes for both A and F bodies. 

What do the trim rings look like? Are they smooth or do they have a lip? Pictures help.

What do you have now? Anything? You can get very beautiful re-pops from NPD in Canton. Worth the money. If you chrome is in good shape and you just need the inserts, again, they have what you need.
