I'm sure somebody mentioned about the possibility before but nothing came of it...I'm selling a set of banded steels that I had that I used as a sort of stop gap...look pretty good but the step is near the outer rim as opposed to near the barrel.

Being as I'm having to revisit everything on the car that was bodged by the garage I've got the lp's blasted and powered coated, look brilliant and am glad now I didn't go with the banded steels.

Could we start a gallery of owners wheels? Think this thread gets a lot of hits/views and info with images is a nice touch.

Start a new thread to make it easier to follow? I've photos of mine on Sprint and Alley Cat wheels.

Acclaim - fully working and on the road
13/60 Herald - mx5 powered and other such fun things, legal enough...
Mk1 2000 - it's still alive, just sleeping
Expert 815d - the slug

If in doubt, do up until you hear the crack and then go another 1/4 turn to ensure tightness.
