How much were you thinking you'd pay for them?

This went into the caprice this weekend. The object was to keep it looking factory and not cut or drill into any panels other than modifying the doors slightly obviously.

Ya need white walls with that car, my caprice has the optional wire cap rims (why you would get rid of the alloys I have no idea) but the prev owner thought it looked better I guess. these beauts eat brakes, way too small of calipers and pads for them, so expect to change pads every 2 years or so.

1. I hate white walls. I'd rather have the car on blocks than run white walls.

2. I got the rallies, center caps, trim rings used for $100 and painted them myself.

I am an old man and drive like an old man .

Brakes last a long time . Especially on a rear wheel drive vehicle .

I am still , slowly working on my late Dad's Caprice . Finally got it street legal .

Can anyone recommend a good cleaner for the interior ? Both the cloth and the plastic ?

Thanks ,
Wyr
God bless
