    The Dart is back on the bench and I picked up steelies from Scenes Unlimited with the red circle caps. I was planning on using wheels from a Vette model but I'm torn between the 2. The steelies will be beige body color. Opinions?

    I guess it depends on what you are going to do with the body. I really like the wheels in the first pick. Reminds me of the wheels that were on a convertible Corvette Gasser model I built years ago. I'd use those, unless you are going stock paint scheme on the body, then I might consider the steelies.

    Is this the corvette kit the wheels came from?

    Yup, that's the kit the wheels and slicks came from. Going beige to mimick my Dart. Still undecided but leaning sleeper look.

      I'm a sucker for body color painted steelies and dog dish caps. The whole "poverty pack" look, but thats just me.
