I hear ya,it wasn't going anywhere...but thanks for the reminder.
Man, you little roadster is just flat out bitchin!!!
Hey thanks man...me thinks so too...and am just so happy to own this car!
I like it!!!!
Wheels & tires look great!
Thanks again guys,cleaning her up now so we can cruise to brunch again today...
Car's come a long way...don't you think?
Wheel combo is killer. I usually like the gennie wheel/trim set ups, but you car really came to life with the change.
Thanks so much...it's like a whole new car!
Do your new wheels use shank-style or acorn-style lug nuts?
Very nice, if you where asking my opinion which you weren't, I would follow the raw finish through out. Mirrors, tail light trim ring, windshield. but i know you didn't ask. I dig the wheels for sure. . . .
Sorry I'm a little slow all i read was the first page, looks amazing
New wheels use the older shank-style lugs and I must say they fit like a glove,very nice close tolerances...as you might expect with an American-made product.
lo c dan,
I hope you got your question answered,these wheels come stock with a satin polished lip and center but nothing else on the car is satin,what little shiny bits there are all chromed or polished so I had to go the polished look instead of satin. I did however,resist the full-polished wheel route...I prefer the "competition" look of the as-cast aluminum.
The shaved side walls make the look even more appealing,nice touch.
I can't wait to get my F.Hawks, I got the raw cast finish with machined lip. I too like the "Business" look. I should have mine in a week or so.
Wow you nailed it. Bad ass. What a beautiful job.
Thanks...after all the expense and effort, I think it was worth it.
Thanks again guys for all the kind words...
I really like the look BUT I am a bit biased.
Looking good Fuzzy...
