Re: Who's running steelies and dog dish caps???

My trucks kinda like that religious lady with the over make-uped face that was on TV with her husband that got busted with the younger chick. She said something like keeping an old barn painted pretty.
1963c-10 I'd rather something I could drive everyday like I used to have.

Excellent work. I've passed by a million of those caps at the swap metets because I didn't have the vision to see them stripped clean of that ugly paint they have.

Re: Who's running steelies and dog dish caps???

Thinking about getting some kind of white letter tire for my truck. Its light green, and I plan to paint the wheels black and have chrome hubcaps. Think it'd look ok?
