    I just got my new rims put on -- What a difference! I yanked off my rusty old white wagon wheels, and got some nice used alloys.

    I also picked up a *really* cheap digital camera -- It's a polaroid 320. It takes pretty crappy pictures, but it was only $79 bucks Canadian -- about $50 US! The next step up from this one was $600, and I'd much rather spend that kind of coin on the truck. I present to you my 1984 GMC Jimmy daily driver:

    There aren't any dust caps on the back -- the ones from my old rims wouldn't fit -- Do I need to track some down? I don't think the hole in the middle goes anywhere.

    I didn't have a before picture of the whole truck -- not that you could have seen the difference using this camera.
    Once I paint the drums in the back, and get rid of the crappy chrome stripe down the side, I think it's going to look pretty sweet.

    Here's the whole thing:
