Picky! Picky! They will look nicer when they are cleaned and shined. They are nearly new or I would have put white walls on her. They will have to do for the time being. Unless I decide to turn them around and just show the black. Something to think about. I don't want to blow the money on white walls. I still have an electric windshield wiper to put in, and dual MC/dual power booster/disc brakes to go... Then there might be a set of throaty sounding Glasspack mufflers in her future...

I REALLY dislike writing on tires, call me goofy but think it just looks stupid....all my tires here are black, writing is on the inside...the words totally take away from the whole picture....

speaking of which, gonna post that bumper shot of you tomorrow with the reflections marked...

Ray, The car looks great! Love the color combo, very smart looking. I agree though with Coral, turn those white letters to the inside, total blackwall should look awesome. You have spent so much time and effort on the beautiful paint job and interior, dont let anything take away from it! My 2 cents worth. LOL... VERY COOL!!!!

I see the consensus here, so far, is that I should have turned the white lettering in and the black side out. To bad I did not think of that while they were mounting the tires! Maybe I can have that done after I get her outta hock and back on the road again.

Just for the record, I'd also go black walls out Ray.

It also appears in the photos that the front bumper should be moved back (approx another inch). This is done so that rear verticle edge of the chrome bumper lines up or matches up with the front fender wheel opening...
