Default Cleaning up

So I found this guy selling his original yellow letter good year tires on craigslist for a good price. (I have the same tires on currently but white lettering, and havent bothered trying to paint them) I figured what the heck and met him to check them out and of course his Monte since he has the same edition. Cool guy, I wound up getting the tires and even a set of rims he had for it. Mainly so I could take the original rims off and get them refinished and off the car for winter. I will eventually mount my factory rims with the yellow letter tires when I eventually feel my car is worth showing. I have a lot of small projects to work on (minor scratches, chips) and bigger ones (supercharger mod) This small step has given me much motivation to move forward after some more research into the exact type of build I want to realistically achieve Here is where I am with the after market rims on that actually don't look so bad, however I do not plan on showing the car with these.

Yea they look very nice Jerry. I love the look of the yellow lettering even if its only purpose was for photography at the track...when a car was at speed the yellow lettering allowed the writing to be crisp and legible in the photo..white would blur

Good looking car. I actually like the aftermarket rims on it too.
