Something very similar was on the K reg BX TXD i had (a run-out trim level to use up bits off the TZD and TZS models if ever there was one).

They looked wank on that, too.

Well done, you're both sortof correct, as I presume they're the same trim anyway.

These came from a Citroen C15 Romahome to be precise!

I love the Carina, great find and purchase, I thought the black steels looked good, can't believe how massive the tyres look with these trims!

Polo probably getting sold 

First dibs go to these people

@yes oui si 

@bunglebus 

@leanycan 

In that order.

If not, I'll put an advert up.

Thank you. I think, due to a sudden unexpected change in my circumstances means I'll have to bow out too. Shame, I think it's a great looking car.

Picked up some wheel trims .

 

Didn't factor in how stupid they'd look...

The problem is, they don't really have a lip that extends out to the full 13 inch rim. So they're effectively 12 inch that fit on 13 inch wheels.

 

10 internet points to anyone who correctly identifies what they are from...

The trims give the illusion that you've got a half-metre high sidewall on the tyres 😅. Very 1920s. 

What about painting the steels a graphite shade?

Fucksake.

Even gave them my reg number!

Anyone know a better way of getting old car parts cheap other than eBay?

I keep getting Carina E parts sent as J reg was on the changeover!

Autodoc and I would search out for a parts catalog and order off the parts number. 

I've problems with the Audi 100. No reg checker can tell if it's a 2.2, 2.3 or a 2.2e. I just use the VW parts number now. And there seems to have been a slight revision in 1988 too to confuse things.

What do you do when you can't find the parts you need? Sort the cosmetics of course.

Wheels are the Clio RSi ones I got from @rob88h , rubbed down and blasted over with Skoda Brilliant Silver, shod in the local part worn specialist's finest 185 / 55 R14s. Firestones on the front for many grips. 

The lower profile keeps the rolling radius about the same.
