I did look at the decal, it was what was used on several unrestored cars. Most cars are void this as it fell off over time... John post correct decal?
Also know at one time there was an Autolite decal but have yet to see one on the Cobra.

They nut is reproduced and there are several originals out there, ebay good for this. Low cost item 4-20 bucks......

Low cost item? On a Cobra? You must be thinking of some other car...

This is not an original air cleaner as the two wing nut indentations are not present. Decals are correct from my research.

Lovely rims, congratualations.
The "spokes" go to the outside of the face and "hit" the barrel, behind the bulge, except for one. Same for front and rear wheel. They had at the original wheels in this area the hole for the valve. This is not the case with your wheels. Was the "face" from the original ones made?
I have collect so many different kidney wheel pics, original and aftermarket, it's confising a bit :-)

Migge

You are right, holes were not placed correctly.....
At this point though there are few to be had and I wanted to get the wheels in hand.
To be correct the air valve should be where the missing spoke is....

Nice catch............

Default Patina

Nice find! Any plans on weathering these similar to the current FIA wheels to get the aged magnesium patina?

Wow….I’m waaaaay behind. So no wonder why it looked like you did such a great job in getting the mag look in recent pictures, and also a compliment to the job you did in getting the “look” on the previous wheels. I hadn’t even noticed the change. And with only needing air for these to age, it certainly takes the guesswork out, and all the work for that matter. Just install and drive, and let Mother Nature do the rest.

The calipers look slightly different from the photo to me but maybe it's just the crack I smoked!
You know about these guys right: BG Developments - Historic Brake Calipers
In case you need parts or whatever.
