Properly installed.

That is going to look incredible!!! And with a gold window sticker.

10 spokes are easy once you know the trick (tightening lug nuts).
(I've lost that photo of my Yellow CS. Would liked to have saved it for posterity, maybe even make an 8 X 10 photo copy!!)

That is going to be sooooo cool! Neil, your cars are high quality restorations, so this will be one of the best around. I can't wait to see the finished product.

Stick with the 10 spokes (unless you can get a set of 65 Cragars like mine):-)

Yep, that's the one. The photos were in my digital camera that dumped.
Nice to have a visual reminder of one's finer moments.
