Turbine wheel lip

Hi guys, I'm thinking about getting the wheel lip high speed polished on a spare set of turbines i have for my 89 LSC. i have 2 sets , 1 with rounded edge (E8LC-1007-BA) + 1 set with square edge (E8LC-1007-AB). I have many other spare turbines all with the rounded edge. So my question is, are the square edge rims rare or just an oddball set? Also has anyone had this done that may have suggestions. Regards.....Ken

I'm intrigued.
So intrigued that I went outside in the rain and carried a known OEM 1988 LINCOLN MARK VII LSC wheel to the covered patio for a quick photo shoot.

The wheel that I shot is an E8LC-1007-BA with a rounded lip.

Club documentation (http://thelincolnmarkviiclub.org/docume ... hedule.pdf) shows a sharp edged wheel with a part number of
E8LY-1007-A.

So far, we have 3 part numbers for turbines :)

Before this thread ends, I may have to rewrite The Club's Wheel Schedule :)

Hi John, here's a pic of my sharp edged rim with #E8LC-1007-AB. Hope this helps!

Oh it helps.

It also gives me yet ANOTHER project; to make an even more detailed wheel schedule than what we've had online for years. Thank you!

This is the look i want to see on the turbines i have. I currently have these BBS wheels on my 89 LSC ( although incorrect for the car) and like the look of the polished wheel lip.
