I like the look of the 70s. Big, meaty, and mean.

Also ark where did you find your dust caps? I've seen the dog dishes but am in no way partial to them, I just got trim rings and chrome lugs, but I like the way yours looks.

I think I bought them from Woodvark at one point. The standard dog dishes are common as dirt and you can find them just about anywhere for reasonable money. I'd trade them for drilled cop dishes just to be interesting.

Well the cheapest pair of doggies around here is $100 for a set of 5. I would say I'd buy them and trade you, but $100 is a bit much in the "dustcap department" considering I paid $25 for the beauty rings. Let me know if you ever want to part with them, they look killer!

I wouldn't even try to find an item like that at advanced or autozone... seriously. The parts store right in town is great for things like lugnuts and ballast resistors, autozone is where you go when you have a neon and you want to "pimp it out". Seriously I have a radio in my car $23 I paid, looked killer, sounded awesome, so I went to purchase another one and they stopped selling it -_- you should've seen their face when I asked if they had loose lugnuts I could look at.  :doh:

Fresh from a clay bar and wax job. Seriously, guys, if you have never used a clay bar before, you need to look up some instructions on Youtube and give it a shot. It doesn't fix any real paint problems, but it gets all kinds of embedded crap out of the paint like overspray and road tar. You can hear that "scritch scritch scritch" sound as you rub the paint fade to silent as it cleans.
