lol bridgener I bet you wish they were a really easy to clean up 5 spoke or something with a simpler design. God damn I can imagine that took forever and was not easy at all. That one does look 10x better now though. What paint did you use? Consider powder coating?

Thanks for the compliments guys! I originally wanted a set of weld racing pro-stars with fairly skinny tires in front and drag radials out back. Then I saw a picture of a Capri with period late 80's mesh wheels and decided that had to be it. They fit the cars' vibe perfectly and are much more functional.

I used some wheel-specific paint and clearcoat from Canadian Tire. Not the best, but it fit my (non-existant) budget. I would love to have them media blasted and powdercoated but it's just not in the cards. Somewhere down the line I'll either find a mint set or refinish them the more permanent way.

Didn't you have a set of green painted meshes or am I thinking of someone else? I don't think these would fit your car though, they have a 4x108mm pattern.

Whose truck in the background? Looks nice!

Option, your car looks much better without those side skirts/air dam you had going a while ago. Super clean!
