    It would look good with the chrome acorns. Maybe chrome grease caps too? This is a good thread. Noice work!:thumbs2:

    Actually, the rings have been on the car for a few years now.
    The near surf board (7 footer) is new.

    Acorn nuts arrived today and are now on the car.
    Now.... where do I find some chrome bullets to pop inside the wheel I wonder? :whistle:

    That will look good. (y)I bet it will look better than the hubcaps. It goes well with the whole surf theme you got going. The wheel covers are like nice old man shoes from 1958, the decked out wheels will be more like a nice pair of vans. Off the wall baby!

    It appears that none of the posts I made last night stuck.

    Clearly I didn't look close enough :oops:

    You know, wide whites would look good on there too.
    I know, they're expensive. I have a habit of trying to spend other people's money.

    Test post. Tired of posting all the type so just this pic for the THIRD time.

    Fixed heater control valve, replaced lug nuts, re-set points and continue driving.
    Blah, blah, blah.

    Little update, I drove "Surf Rat" to Church and back playing with the heater controls.
    They actually work now!!!!
    No heat to light heat to full heat. Love it!
    Starts, runs and seems dependable.
    Not bad for a 61 year old machine.

    Nice! :thumbs2:
    We drove the Fury to church on Sunday as well. It was such a beautiful day. One of these years I'll get the heater controls fixed on my car too. It's not a huge priority since I don't drive mine all year round like you do.
