Center wheel cap sticker query...

Recommended Posts

I'm going to refurb a set of Ford wheel trims, (Stop laughing in the back, we all can;t afford a fancy set of alloys!)

Just going to spray a few coats of gloss black, but I'm looking for a set of center stickers, preferably '3D' gel with Ford logo in black. The size is 78mm and I can't find a listing on Ebay. To be honest, I'd settle even for a set of plain  'carbon fiber' ones, but that size doesn't seem common. Anyone a suggestion of a supplier? Bearing in mind, I'm cheap! LOL

Already emailed, they did my front Ford grill logo, but get the feeling that if they even do them, I'd be cheaper buying a new set of wheel trims LOL

But Tom, I've grown to love plastic wheel trims! LOL When I had a set of £1400 Oz Superturismo 18" on my last car, I was forever getting them refurbed, (I'm not the best at staying away from kerbs), topping them up weekly as they were made of a sponge like material, fitting regular 'alloygators' to protect them, spending an age cleaning them etc etc.

Steel wheels don't leak, I have a TPMS system and I haven't needed to touch them in months, if I damage one really badly, I have some spare in my shed which I got in Europarts sale for £10, yep, that's for all 4. It's absolute stress free, and awfully cheap motoring - I'm a big fan!  🤣

Ah, that's the trouble with cheap aftermarket parts! :tongue:

I haven't had to top up my OE alloys up since October...October last year! :laugh:

Dad asked me to check his tyres a couple of weeks ago, so thought it was about time I checked mine again as well, all still at 30psi. :biggrin:

I am super careful around kerbs though lol, the Golf rims were refurbed just before I bought it mid 2018, first car I've ever had with pristine alloys so I've made sure not to scrape them! :laugh:

Each to thier own though, can't beat a bargain at the end of the day! :biggrin:
