    hey T --

    I just use regular wax on the wheels -- there's some special wheel junk, but it's too thick, and i have a bich of a time getting it off -- my '91 has better wheels (more cleanable) than my '94 -- dunno why -- maybe newe -- my '94s are more pourous on the unpolished area -- :|

    well, if they're perhaps wheel locks, you better try to find out before the next flat, eh? not to mention figure out if there is a key adapter someplace...?

    It looks good! But I'm wondering is this one of those before and after pictures where you make the before look really bad (overweight people without smiles or make up in the before, skinny smiling folks with makeup in the after). I mean the befores are all blurry. ;)
