    I received some photos of his '55 convertible today from Lou (Roadster601) so I will post them here for all to enjoy his '55 Convertible! He tells me these photos were made when he had the car out to attend a car show this past weekend, so maybe he will follow up this post with some information about the show, where it was, attendees, and how he did?
    Lou ??
    And I'm curious about how he attached the wire wheels? Did the clips I recommended work? or not? If not, what did you use?

    hello all for all your input, it can be done but lots of cash and time to do this, problem is the spokes and ridgity of the cap wont be there when its cut to fit on the rim so I'm done, unless someone has a 56 hub cap ready to go on, I'm sure no-one has done this so I'm done as I said before thank you to all who tried ...
