I had a similar problem a couple of months ago with some steel wagon wheels I sand blasted and powder coated.  I found a store on e-bay that had a huge selection of center caps.  I needed 4" and I think I saw 40 million 3.75" models before I found a set of 4wd 4".  I got the set of 4, metal not plastic, brand new, for around $20.

So, search ebay stores - you will find what you need.

yeah but he wants 65$ a cap and those are just push in plastics. 

He does have a nice selection and in decent shape, ebay is cheaper for same suff though.

The front wheels fit pretty well without caps i think maybe the rears i'll find something cheap to pop in for the rear, any ideas?

Ummm.. my neighbor has a '55 T-bird with a 292 V8... that has a 3.75 inch bore.  Find an old set of those pistons, polish them up and have them chrome plated!

Nah, that'll never work.

But seriously. I've done a fair amount of searching in my spare time and there are just no 3.75 inch center caps.  You sure of that size?

Measured twice and checked with a 4" cap.  Sour cream cup fits just right!!

First got oil filter for 84 ramcharger, next cut bottom at seam, pried back edge to remove inners; slightly under pressure, the used pliers to make a lip to set on inside of rim.

Freakin' awesome!  I have Centerline wheels on my '89 and I swear their center caps look *exactly* like those oil filers, but chrome.  Right down down to the dimples on the sides.

Now all i need is to get a hole saw for the front hubs.  Painted silver but forgot to prime first, i was going to remove all paint and just go natural and clear coat but that got old quick.

Hands down, the best use I've seen for a Proselect filter! If you had used a Gold one, then I would have been offended. ;D

Nice job, dude! {cool}
