Thing you can get fibreglass trims to cover the holes & make the wheels look like the old solid rims Tan.
There were a set on a set of wheels on Fleabay, but no idea where you'd get them from, if they are on the market, or were home made Smile

She's looking so much cooler on the steels now, well done guys!!! afro

I read somewhere that they were a 80's-90's thing Rick not sure if they're still avaliable or not...
It would be easy enough to weld the holes up.. Wink

Im really proud with Beryls first proper outing to Bristol over the weekend. We had a small upset where she cut out on the way and wouldnt restart but we popped a new battery on and she started a treat!
We had some really positive comments from loads of people over the weekend and the suicide doors were definatley a hit! Rob75 did some pinstriping on the deck lid which looks great THANKS ROB!! But unfortunatley my camera got broken over the weekend so I cant put any pics up.
We also got her tuned up for a bargain price of a tenner and she starts perfectly, doesnt cut out and absaloutley flies!!
All in all im delighted with her and the response that she had, roll on the next show!

xxxxxxxx

She cruised home at 60 all the way yesterday and my foot was only gently rested on the accelerator. I reckon you could get quite a bit of speed out of her if u tried!
