    Finally got a pic of the steelies with caps on. This is the first iteration of many I'm sure. I intend to go with 3" wheel studs and just a black rear steelie. Haven't decided on the fronts yet. I'll run this setup for a bit and see if it grows on me. Clean and simple though. First pic is of the wheels it came home with that won't work with the wider tires. Still like the look of them though.

    really looking good once you lift it up all around those wheels and tires will really come to life and she will look tough and ready to pounce nice job.

    Poverty caps are a good look with the black wall tires, I personally like the subtle rake for a street car.

    To me: Steelies in black or matching to the body paint with Dog Dishes is the best way to go!

    Great car, great look!

    I am still waiting for my original 62 Dog Dish Caps, to do the same thing!! :toothy10:

    Looks good. Raising it up will make an improvement also. Body color on the rims would look good with the dog dishes as another option.

    Thanks for the thumbs up Gents. Lifted the front and back a little bit. Got bench seats, bumper, and some more parts on the way for it too.
