    ...here's the Vintage 15" wheels which arrived this morning before work...Bob at Vintage Wheels in sunny California kindly included a proper mallet, lockwire pliers, drive bolts for the Simon hubs, bolts for the rear adaptors, and o ring retained centre caps. Spinners are polished then satin bead blasted as I requested; wheel centres dont show up too well on the pic, but antique gold like the chromate finish on magnesium wheels.

    dunno yet re measurements chap; I only opened the parcels this morning and then went to work, but they fit in my hall just dandy!!!! Will check backspace measurements tonight but proof of the pudding is on the car! Have to get the tyres fitted and I have the hub swap to do as Im still using the car with the image wheels on, had a mint drive around yesterday until about 10pm, after spending the morning doing a few jobs to it and polishing ally!!
    Would like to get the tyres bought and fitted this week, so may take a day off to go to Brum, then fart around swapping everything at the weekend.
    Yes JK and I were talking about the options, and he reminded me I'd need a 2.88 diff so will keep my eyes open for one...
    Regards Steve

    They look grand, Steve! Very nice indeed

    (He says, still trying to figure out how to chop things about enough to go with knock-ons on the DeDion)

    I expect to see pictures on the car by next weekend after all this suspense in shipping
