  1. Just had my windscreen put in and I relised that without the chrome strips, with the type of seal I have it looks shit! Was not going to use the chrome because I did not get it with the car and thought I could use a different seal and it will look sweet. Anyway not the case, the guy who put the screens in said he has a aftermarket chrome product has anyone used this, I don't want it to look cheep! Also I'll start searching for a desent set, for my 71 1600 any idear who has or where I can find it cheers

I'm very excited with the cars progression at the moment. not to far of now,well after 6 years it wont be much longer.....

    Wheel Size And Style

    didn't they stop making Simmons rims years ago, not for me its been done over and over again
  14. I'm now looking to purchase a set of rims for the 1600 and with the amount of wheels on the market its tough to choose. i know it is a individual choice but what are you running? what is the difference in quality? (saw a set that i liked yesterday but they where only $1400 with tyres sounds way to cheep) what size and width are they? and finally whats the legalistic of it all?
