Right. These banded steelies are going to be cool. FACT!

But I'm struggling to decide on a colour.

First choices are Red (obviously), Black (like the standard wheels), or Silver. Or maybe Black centres with Silver rims?Then I started thinking some sort of beige might look cool. I don't think bright modern colours would really suit it..... would they?

Then of course I've got to consider the hubcaps and trim rings. The chrome's fucked on them after 56 years so they're painted Silver (badly). Obviously I can pop them on and off as I feel. Whereas the colour's pretty permanent.

I'm in a dilemma. :wahhh

You know what. I think I've always known the answer. It's gotta be RED

Just needed some confirmation.

Cheers guys :tu

Red would look cool but cream might be nice and period looking.

I've been in two minds about the lime green on my wheels and if Hammerite did their copper colour in smooth finish I think I'd go for that.

Lucky guy! If i had a garage or a unit, i'd definitely have an E28 in there to play with :D

The standard is the nads. I have to agree with you about leaving the paint though - aged paintwork looks awesome!

They look pretty damn awesome! Take some leadsled or hot rod styling cues and maybe try to mix them in? Wicked looking motor.

This one might be for sale (minus the visor)

Needs alot of welding though apparently

Chap on RetroRides did them for me. Very reasonable and very well done. There's a little ad in his sig here.

To drive, they feel about the same as the alloys. Bit lighter on the steering if anything.
