I'm still after a pair of 13" chrome trim rings- skinny ones not wide ones like some Ford examples. Surely someone's got a pair of 'em?!

New repro ones probably the best bet as the only car that used those nice slim curved ones was the Mk1 Escort 1300E as far as I know, Could be difficult to find some nowadays. And whilst I'm at it the Mk3 Escort Ghia trim rings are almost identical to those angled ones on Mk1 Zodiacs. I'll get me anorak.....

Arden Continental Car Accessories, 427 Warwick Road, Tyseley, Birmingham, B11 2JU. Tel 0121 706 4254.
They do trim rings in all sizes (the 'old' style skinny ones you're after) and a huge range of repro hubcaps (with or without logos), Austin, Morris, Hillman, early Ford 'dimple' and later 105E type, hell they even have Austin Metropolitan caps. Give them a call, I'm pretty sure the do mail order.

Ta! Only really want a pair though as they're for my Portafold. Vauxhalls had skinny ones too, in fact there's a Viva estate just around the corner from where I live with a set on it. Good thing for him I'm not light fingered!

They sell them individually.

You have 13" rims on your Portafold? Mine had 10" and so do two others I know of.

Yup, it has A30 or A35 wheels on it. Look much better because they fill up the arches a treat.
