Looks good as long as the engine is at TDC with #1 cylinder on the compression stroke :)

My car has a wide variety of non-matching lugs. What is the correct style?

Are the heads on an R16 3 main an 5 main the same?
And will both accept an H20 block?
Thanks

The part numbers in the wiki seem to all be out of production :/

I just ordered these ANCO 20-13 Vintage blades. They're an inch longer than the Tricos. I'll report back on fitment.

Look at this on eBay http://www.ebay.com/itm/253048379826

Can't you just keep the original holder and just slide the rubber wiper in there. I think you can even trim a wiper that is too long.

That's what I would do if the ones I were replacing weren't black. Now that the hardware is OE looking, I'll go with the rubber inserts moving forward.

Simon,
Some wheels, like Appliance take special lug nuts, so depends on your wheel .Z wheels use different studs. Larger wheels need longer studs frequently too. A pic would be best.

I'll get some pics and post em...

In other news, it seems like every time I pop the hood, my clutch reservoir cap is slightly off.

Anyone know if this is normal and how I can prevent this ?

I should probably change that fluid, right?

Yes, I would change the fluid! May preserve the seals a little longer.

Cap should have an atmospheric vent in it somewhere: maybe it's blocked?
