    Welcome to the site. I like the patina on mine; reminds me of the cars you see in motor museums. Is the steering wheel wood-rimmed?

    I'm a big fan of patina... and as my friends garage calls it 'brown heritage dust' - I can also recommend from experience, distracting from heavily scratched gel coat by covering it with stickers and race numbers.

    70mm by 63mm - quick sand to give a key and a coat of gloss black paint, finished off the wheel a treat.

    Previous owner added the leather buckle, when the cam latches failed, and the bonnet flew up and smashed the windscreen. Another item to be revisited.

    Cheers Alex, might still go spinner.....although I remember nearly being decapitated by one about 25 years ago, heading to Newark show. Stood in layby, waiting for my mate's GTM to cool down, as a Cobra rumbled past, followed by a ping ping ching as it came straight at us like a bouncing bomb.

    That era of wheel & spinner may well be a bit prone to such things... Cough.
