The gentleman would prefer Panasport knockoffs or meshies. Though 1st Gens have a strange way of making things I don't like grow on me. For example, I know sort of want to 13B and Dellorto swap an SA instead of buying a GSL-SE...

The only meshies that ever looked good an SA/FB are the 14" LE's I had on mine. The 15" Enkei's are just a flat face and look horrible. Pana's are going to be $$$$ unless you want the new 15" Rewind's from Konig.

I saved the Hayashi's to do in Bronze and stick on a side-drafted SA in Lime Metallic with fender mirrors...
