Never really been a fan of them. Bought black extended lug nuts to make it look halfway ok. Going to measure what I'd need for press on "hub covers" that i can use instead and then going to have the center cap retainers that are built into the wheel machined smooth and then all of them sandblasted & powdercoated.

Let us know how the hub covers turn out, I'm running my current wheels without center caps because they suck as well, but the bare hubs look awful.

I painted my hubs black and it's... "OK". Nothing special. But people don't seem to mind and I might keep it that way until I get the new wheels.

Took my car to its first show of the year and took home first in my class. Not bad for a big old boat.

Bought an old junked 5.3 LM7 motor... so I'm sure you can guess what the setup for the SS is going to be this spring


Had to get it down to the shortblock and start cleaning all the nastiness off it so I can prep it for some black paint.


Finding it hard to balance time and budget between that and my latest acquisition. Car now has a Borla ATAK axleback and JBA longtubes will be here this Thursday ready for installation over the weekend. I fell in love with the car because it reminds me so much of the SS, only nicer, newer, and a LOT faster (for now...)
