PostSubject: Center caps, painting rotors, pinstriping wheels?   May 4th 2010, 12:13 pm

I need center caps for my wheels, and they are very difficult and expensive to find. Is there anyone out there who can make center caps? I can paint them, no problem. The wheels are an older, racing version of Team Dynamics F-series wheels. Center caps are missing because originally the wheels had been used for racing only.

Also, are there any DIYs on how to paint rotors?

And finally: I'm thinking about pin stripping the wheels. They are black, 12-spoke wheels. I've got a silver car, but am thinking about buying a blue WRX wagon. The red pinstripe would look good, but has anyone seen a blue pinstripe on a blue car? If so, how did it look? I can't find any pics on the Net.

For Center caps cut the bottom of a pop can out. Trim to the right size, paint and pop them in. I've seen tons of people do that and they look good. I prefer no center caps and if you plan on racing a lot of sanctioning bodies don't allow center caps, just an FYI in case you wanna race.

Are they the center caps held on by a single allen screw? I used to have a set of team dynamics 5 years ago and loved them, minus the weight of course, they were about 20lbs apiece.

Don't know how they are held on. I've never had any. But suspect they use the usual plastic clips. Good idea about pop cans.

I don't know what these weigh, but they are lighter than most. Certainly a lot lighter than my Sekudo wheels.

I'd love to race. Can't afford it. And besides, driving around cones in a parking lot is not my idea of racing. We need to go out into the middle of the Big Open and put together a 250 mile rally that never gets off gravel.
