Here's the completed woodgrain restoration and touched up rear fender-well...See earlier pics for NOS OEM wire wheel covers that I added.  These are of the original wheel covers that came with the car.  Vote which wheel covers you like better!  ;-)
Happy Motoring!

The tires were the among the most challenging part to locate due to the limited availability of 13 inch tires, and more so as white walls!


I went through that a few years ago myself, and I can't imagine it's gotten any easier! 

I DEFINITELY vote for the NOS wire wheel covers.
