Made center caps for the Bird

This is a discussion on Made center caps for the Bird within the Appearance Section forums, part of the General Help category; Got board at work and made these. I think they look better than those ABS ones on there before....

    Thats pretty darn neat, not to mention original. Where do you work that you get to use the tools/machines to make something like that? I like it!

    I was thinking bout it. But before I do let me see if the ones on my car do last a while. It has been warm here in Texas and it just rained so let me see how they respond to the weather.

    Thanks! I'll test them for a month on my car, and if they still look good, I will try to sell some.

    Man if they last, I'd be interested in a set. Just change it to say WS6.

    That would be no problem.

    So far it has with held the elements, but to be on the safe side let me give them 30 days. Last thing I want is to have a bad name on here as someone who rips people off.

    I'd be careful with the HP ratings.. as with most of these cars.. they don't stay stock for long.. But the wheel caps look great! If I didn't have my hotwheels, I'd be all over those.

    True on the HP, but since I can make these here at work, if HP increases I can make new ones.
