    Working out a few details on the 58 Ellena.....

    I have the Borrani wheels and my valve stems look like this.

    I have see wheels that have valve stem covers installed - not particularly my car because there are mim to none original that could be a reference.

    What would be appropriate for me to do on my car.....covers or no covers????

    Here is what i have......

    you have here 2 small covers: 1 is metall/brass and the other is plastic/rubber. the plastik is on the metall and the metal has a "pin" to remove the valve.
    I´m not sure if this metall valve with the thread has been orignal? I have seen the valve on the tube in a normal diameter and when it comes thrugh the aluminum rim there is a separate larger plastic that the valve will not get damaged.

    That topic is on the agenda for the next IAC/PFA board meeting. Ask Parker Hall.

    then is it correct to have the covers on the inner tube stems? seems to imply so?
