Tom on this forum had suggested to me to use some black engine wire to simulate valve stems and I must say it was a brilliant idea. Have a look.

 

 

 

Very cool.  Glad to help and happy you did it. They do look very nice!

Great work so far...now, you just need to add wheel weights to the rim!  

 

I just use a small piece of wire smashed in flat nose pliers and a small silver stripe across the rim...

I know the sky is the limit when it comes to detailing but I'll just settle for the valve stem detail! :o

What?  My next idea was threads on the lug bolts...

 

It really is looking good, though.

Way too much work.  I just put a dab of epoxy on the rim and elongate it with a toothpick.  Let it set up and touch it with a bit of aluminum paint.  Voila!

Funny. The car I used as an example for the valve stem also has photo etched wheel weights on it.  I suggested the stem because I saw from the photos that you already had black ignition wire and it was an easy fix.  I wasn't sending you out for the aftermarket weights!

Thanks guys for all of the great comments. Well another build completed. I finished this one off this afternoon. Here she is painted in factory colour Tropical Turquoise with the standard gray and black interior sporting the 283ci 283hp fulie. Have a look and see what you think and thanks for following this topic. :)
