If you go to Jegs.com and search for VHT it should come up on the list. That is where most people get it.

I did mine and it does look sweet. I never actually finished mine right though. I covered it with a layer or two of clearcoat but never smoothed it out. It still looks good the way it is.

What did you use on yours the first time?

I got mine from Summit, got 2 cans but only used 1/2 to 3/4 of 1. I put 3 coats of VHT on then 2 coats of clearcoat. IT looks great but i can swear after 5 months it kinda looks like its getting lighter. I dont know how thats possible wit the clearcoat tho.

I noticed in your sig you have the 18" wheels. You wouldn't happen to have the 16" gold lace wheels sitting around would you?

LOL...Aviator, the gold laced rim pimp...

I have seen a 1992 SE for sale in my area, same colour as yours and it had 16in silver laced rims, it looked very good, but if gold is what you want...then keep searching.

Hmmm, now that I think about it, you have that cool gold trim, so, ya, gold might be the way to go

Sorry, thinking aloud now....

And I got off topic again

It'* apparent that the two members I have contacted must not be interested in selling theirs. I guess it'* time for me to start looking elsewhere.

YEs, i have them sitting in my garage in plastic bags still wrapped in Michelin PIlot XGT ZR rated sneakers. I was planning on using them for the winter or burning up at the track, sorry. BEsides, if i had to replace one, it would cost 520.00 from the dealer, i wouldnt sell them for under 350 a peice since they are mint.

sorry,
