Don't care what anyone says, Dollar Bill I like the look and the caps are an interesting look. Pretty sure I like it, but hey if you like it then WIN! Am I right?

I've spent too long looking into the abyss. It's starting to look back.

If they don't get it, thats ok with me.
I won't see them at Bonneville!
Looks and function are a win for me!
The plastidip will protect my paint this winter from rock chips, interstate driving can take its toll on the front of the car. I could get a bug shield, but I want to go without.
The Moon hubcaps might help with mpg's and have been around longtime. Here is some history on the hubcaps...
They've probably not heard the term Moon (or racing disc) hubcap which became popular in the fifties. Interestingly enough, the first spun aluminum Moon wheel cover was not invented in the fifties. Bob Rufi, the fastest man alive in 1940, used spun aluminum hubcaps from, of all things, a WWI Jenny war plane to help streamline his 140 mph record breaking speed machine at the Bonneville Salt Flats.
With the Moon's and scallops, I like the vintage items on my new car.

Most people want to color match those, rather than make them black. But to each his own! I like it.
