Cheers guys Very Happy

They've been done a fair few times - mostly in the states tho. They're the same wheels as before, but with the hubcaps removed. To get the chrome caps to fit I had to drill 4 holes in each wheel and fit the pre 67 clips (avaliable from heritage etc), secure them with teeny tiny bolts and lock nuts and then pop the cap on!

These are the only 'side' pics I've got:




They'll look much better once they're colour coded as the wheel won't blend into the tyre lol
