  5. I used a standard chrome center cap and whittled the tip piece on my lathe and JB welded them on the caps. I'll see if I have a better picture somewhere.
     
  6. Since gassers seem to be OK here, this is my buddy Joe's '65 Winternationals and March Meet C gas winner.

    I have always loved polished Americans. It took many hours to keep them clean. It's like an addiction. This is from middle 70's .

    Love this thread. I have been trying to figure out what wheel and tire combo to use on my 5W. Definitely leaning towards mags after reading through this.

    I know this isn't strictly correct for this thread, but you gotta love this ad: "now you can make your chrome wheels look just like the popular NEW Mag type wheels"
