I don't know what you guys are bitchin' about - I think the ones on the right look great and very close to the original Datsun caps. They do have that "brushed nickle" finish though and would look even better in chrome. I wonder if you could spray them with some of that cheap "chrome" paint? Or get them chromed... ($$$)

Cheers

Okay, a little restoration with getting matching paint in a spray can so I can blend in the primed parts of the body. Getting it close to descent presentation for JCCS.
