I recently won an old built Aurora Demolition Derby car on eBay. (Way back when I was in the 4th grade (about 1970 I guess) a fellow student gave me one for Christmas when we drew names. Who knows what became of it.) Anyway, I got this one & the 2 rear wheels/tires have been replaced with some from something else, yellow with hub caps. I'm guessing something Monogram. Anyway, I'd like to restore it best I can & it's supposed to have plain bare rims on back as well as the front. I see Lindberg's got quite a few older 1/32 cars. If anyone has built any of these or another crand with plain wheels & chrome hub caps, I'd like to know if the hub caps are separate from the rims & if so, are the rims fairly detailed, i.e., lugs, etc.? If so, also, which kit(s)? I figure I can get another car kit with plain rims & tires & fix this one. I also figure I can make a mold & cast a couple in resin if necessary, or maybe round up a 1/35 - 1/32 military Jeep & re-work the tires as another resort. Lastly, anyone who's familiar with the old Aurora Demolition Derby kit, what kind of car is it? I figure a mid - late '50s Ford or Chevy, but that's my extent of knowledge. :) Thanks.
