Fear not, it'll be up on the photogenic, uncluttered spot on the common later today for the customary set of pic's.Regarding wheels, it does look 200% better now the trims are fitted. What's nice about them is that they have a bronze tint like the bottom colour on the doors. I do take the point about how far they sit in though - I imagine the steels will be the same, the alloys on my UK car have a 30mm offset. The cheap options I have in the immediate future are:1) Fit alloys off UK car. Similar offset, uglier than the steels + covers.2) Fit set of Lotus alloys that ScrapingScrap/UtterPiffle has spare.3) Fit set of slotmags that I've had for yonks. Worth a trial fit if nothing else.4) Do nothing.Lotus ones might be best, I'll perhaps see if he can bring one along to the Tuesday meat (sic) for a trial fit. These C32's have a very large brake backing plate which doesn't suit all wheels - we certainly couldn't get older Laurel/Skyline alloys onto my other C32.Stuyizz very thoughtfully applied fresh underseal when he was doing the MoT work for me. I take the point about the Waxoyl etc.Body-wise there are odd bits to sort, just little chips etc other than the odd bit of grot. Think I will have a chat with friend Nick about how to deal with them on a rolling basis, perhaps getting a panel or two at a time sorted as and when Xmas bonus, eBay sales etc permit. White should make it a bit easier? Fortunately it's not a pearl finish or anything like later ones.Right, off in my other piece of 1985 loveliness now to help Baz get that R9, seeya!

The home of one previous owner Japanese cars:

1973 Datsun 1200 B110 2dr; 1980 Laurel 2.4 C230; 1988 Sunny 1.6 LX N13
1992 Camry 2.2GL (definitely just for spares now); 1993 Camry Estate 2.2GL on the road again!!

I got some very 80's looking directional (two LH and two RH) Oscam alloys. They are 6x14. They are corroding under the laquer so really they want the laquer paintstripping off and polishing back up.

Any good?

The rear lights on those always remind me of the early Rover 200 ones.
