    Nice! Merry Christmas to me :D It'll look much better with the Rally wheels instead of the wheel covers (IMO).

    Good score, just for the centers alone. Nothing good pops up around here for sale.

    I'll get more pictures on days off. One side had been spotted and the rest had heavy oxidation. I went to my friends auto paint store to get some compound to buff it out. He told me the "old timers" told him that washing it with Ajax/Comet would take the oxidation off. It worked then I used an cleaner wax on it. It saved me hours of buffing.
