Flip cover, Electron lock cap.
16 x 7 square set.
I'd been keeping an eye open for a complete/tidy set of these for a while, which turned out to be no easy task.
While there's always a handful of sets available, they're almost always not great - they just don't last. They seem to corrode badly, and worn out sets are near worthless as a result. I've watched sets of these go for nothing..
Like others, I'm a little dubious about how to go about refinishing them properly, so just had to wait for a clean enough set. The set I have aren't great, but original, and good enough to give you an idea of what they were like new.
So get that imagination going.. or just slightly blur your eyes...
The parts and wheel assembly in detail:
'STAR MAGNA: THE ABSOLUTE ULTIMATE IN LIGHTNESS AND STRENGTH. AN EXCLUSIVE SPEED STAR DESIGN.'
That could have well just been a decal; but no.. the subtle debossed (?) lettering helps make this one of the nicest SSR plates ever IMO.
my Hasemi sports..
I wish they stuck them on neater.. but in their defence; they likely didn't expect some idiot to be frothing over these 25years later...! haha
But done! That's all.
These would have looked so damn sharp when new.
I'll definitely be keeping a lookout for a NOS set.. the finish and detailing on these is just great.
Anyway, just a cool old SSR that doesn't get much love. :)
