Where did you get the center cap?

How old is this post...like 2 years? Sure is a lot of life with those alloy wheels.

Nothing wrong with bumping an old post with a question.

I got the center caps from Don at Ohio Mustang from an eBay auction he had going. I think he still has them available on his website.

I researched my receipts and I had found some NOS lug nuts on eBay back in 2006. I paid $52 for a set of 20. I did some research a while back and I believe Gorilla Brand lug nuts are available that are very close to the original length. I think the Gorilla brand was slightly shorter than the NOS ones.

The guy that sold me the wheels said this old lug nut was one of the original ones. It looks like it is about 2 1/4 inches long.

Huh... I figured those were aftermarket on my car... maybe those long lug nuts are the originals after all...

Wow...those center caps look great. Now that Luxstang is back in Lux, I don't think I would have to lock them up.

That toenail juice probably wore out by now anyway.

That's great cruising music to be driving around showing off my aluminum wheels! Big Grin

To be clearer, I should have said 2 out of the 3 original Bee Gee's are stayin' alive..

I have a 73 conv given to me 8/73 for my 21st birthday present. I would be interested to know where you got the wheels and tires.
