  10. Just curious but regarding buying new , I have looked at JBW Wheels but the hub looks different from the originals , or is it my eyes ?

  12. Following my recent catastrophic disaster with one of my wheels ( see discussion section ) I am now on the look out for a Lotus 5 1/2 J steel wheel. One would get me on the road again ( two would be brilliant ) , dose not have to have the 188P stamp on it but must be serviceable , ie not buckled or worn bolt holes ( like what I have at the moment ) not bothered about tyres as I have them already. Any help much appreciated.
  13. I refurbished mine , its quite easy to do and will save you a fortune. 1 Remove the vents by drilling the small rivets out. 2 Make sure they are nice and clean , a wash in soapy water dose the trick. 3 Spray them Gloss Black , the more shiny they are the better. 4 I used a paint called Alclad Chrome ( Google Alclad Chrome paint ) through an airbrush , mist this on with fine coats , your vents will turn chrome before your eyes. 5 Once dry you can use a two pack varnish although this will dull the finish ( I left mine well alone.) 6 I put my vents back into there sockets using Gator glue as I could not find any rivets small enough , worked a treat. 7 Sit in your car and admire your lovely shiny vents
