My Buddy, Chris, made some custom billet center caps with Shelby logos, for my bullet style wheels. He also made one up for my steering wheel. I think they look awesome. http://memimage.cardomain.net/member_images/8/web/776000-776999/776433_64.jpg http://memimage.cardomain.net/member_images/8/web/776000-776999/776433_65.jpg

From what I can see (thanks to the tiny pictures that seem to be newly enforced on the forum) they do look very nice. Get one more for a flip open gas cap!

They look good from what I can tell. How are they made? Can you link to a larger picture?

Also, if your friend can make custom badges, I would be interested, especially if he can do one for a pop open gas cap.

Oops, I meant the billet caps only, he made the caps to fit the existing Shelby logo insert.
Bigger pics.

Chris, who made the inserts, has been taking advanced lathe training, and made the inserts for practice. He took a 3" billet of aluminum, and removed everything that didn't look like a center cap. http://memimage.cardomain.net/member_images/8/web/776000-776999/776433_66_full.jpg http://memimage.cardomain.net/member_images/8/web/776000-776999/776433_67_full.jpg
