Well, if that doesn't convince him to fit minilights, nothing will.

Always thought DDD was a stunning looking car Dave, almost,...........almost wish I had gone minilights on mine now.


Just not gold!

Love Minilites (have them on the Rally Car) but stag steels and Rostyle wheel trims for a PI every time!!

Lovely set of gold Minites on ebay at the moment in Taunton. I'm down that way next week so may bid on them for the Mk1 PI estate because I know Alan would love that :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Just showed the gold ones to my considerably better half. "They're yucky!" Mind you, she does like all silver Minilites...but no polished rims...and then reminded me that keeping the car original might be a good idea :lol:

Moss have some mild steel 6-3-1's in stock. Not sure if they will be suitable for your installation, but might be worth giving them a call.

Because they look good ....... and for my everyday car to match my original BL Special Tuning built cars .....
Also from experience a lot easier to clean than 'S' wheels!
