New wheels for the AeroKit car

I just got back one of my sets of factory twist wheels (Guards Red) from Wheel Works in OKC. It's the third set of wheels they've refinished for me (they did the D90 wheels on the 944S2 Cab next to the aero car). They do awesome work - I'm very pleased. I still have a second set of the twist wheels for them to do. Second set will be Gulf Orange - then I'll have to decide on orange or red accents for the car.

Fred (Nine8Six) is working me up a set of black center caps for them - they'll look outstanding!

Kram, Mikesz - Fred will probably pop up here soon to answer, but short story is he makes them in small batches working around his headlight upgrades, his wife and his real job.

Patience is the key - you may wait several months. They are worth the wait.

Yeah, Fred's reply back is that he might do some more and would let me know. I was just razzing him. Good guy always polite and honest in his replies to me.

Fred shows us that it is possible to do awesome work and yet still remain humble. Others could take a page from his book.
