That is a Dallas Custom job on the rim. I cerakoted the butterfly and remounted the rubber pad.

That’s who I use for thick grip wheels. Very happy with their work. They did a good job making it look stock.

It has been a few weeks since an update, but Glen has been plugging away. Went with the Fat Mat instead of trying to put the factory soundproofing in. in 2019 a man can ignore the benefit of modern technology only so long. Attached Image

I feel like when the sail trip vinyl goes on, it is a big deal. Here is a series of Glen's work, from drilling the trim holes to laying out the top and side pieces. Along with the gratuitous photo of the trim still in its package. I am really liking the way @gms works and I hope you enjoy the build as much as I do.

Really changes the look of the car. In my little pea brain, a 914 needs the black vinyl to look proper. Yeah, yeah, I know- a lot of 914's came from the factory w/o the vinyl. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

You guys really rock. I know it is more work than it looks but when you show an oval led hole disappear into ivory white roundness. Well, it looks really sharp.
