bonnietiler,

This is a detailing site and you have just upped your cleaning and maintaining workload by 150%! Of course it is.

I think they make the car look great. What are they?

Looks very nice, but I’d be getting some sort of sealant on them to make life easier when cleaning down the line...

They look very nice. Maybe a spray on and rinse off sealant might be the easiest, something like hydro or bead juice.

Car looks mint too, is it old enough to have a black and silver number plate?

I think you should have gone with 17" chrome spinners and airbags with some colour changing under car neons to give it a contemporary twist.

It is old enough and just delivered this AM was a set...
17" chrome spinners are a bit "Brinnington" don't you think?

I really like the look of those. As the guys have said, you have exponentially increased your work load lol. But that's a good thing to us weirdos....

Co. Armagh reg too. Lovely car.

Nah, chrome spinners are how the g-dogs in Hulme roll, those in Brinnington are stuck in the past with TSW Venoms.

Isn't it up to 1978 for the black plates IIRC?

Surely they won't need any cleaning, it's a Stag so presumably it doesn't go very far....
