OEM Center Caps With Metal Crest

I have two sets of four. I priced them on eBay and was amazed what a broken old center cap sells for. These are worn and have many defects. Click on the pictures for higher resolution images, that is better than me describing them.
Each set of 4, as is, as pictured, $40 shipped USA.

Set 1:
993.361.303.09
*some significant chips in the crests



Set 2:
993.361.303.10
*Silver paint has worn off of 3 of them.



All 8 in different lighting, better contrast:


I am willing to sell individual caps $15 shipped.

Set 1: 993.361.303.09 is sold.

Set 2: 993.361.303.10 is still available.
That's 3 that the silver paint has come off of and one that looks repainted.

Crests are now removed and the plastic portion of the center caps are not currently for sale.
All 4 for $40 shipped or singles for $12.50 each.
Removed from part no. 993.361.303.10



I removed the crests from the center caps a couple weeks ago when I realized they were loose. Plan to list them on eBay soon if not sold here.

Just a note on these (not these specifically). I had a set like them and cleaned them up and sprayed some clear coat on them and they improved noticeably,

Two of the original crests are sold to Explorerlyon, two remain.
I also have 2 more crests and a hood emblem. Here's pics and info:
Items 1 and 2, good condition, but heavy clear coating on them that is slightly yellowed. These are the two on the left in my previous picture. $12.50 ea. shipped USA.


Items 3 and 4: 3 is original, but is in rough shape. Chipped enamel and slightly concaved (warped). 4 does not appear to be OEM and does not have the holes for a wheel emblem. I found it loose in a car I had purchased. $5 each mailed in an cardboard envelope, or Buy all 4 for the low, low price of $30 shipped (USPS Priority).


Hood emblem. Does not include nuts (I have them somewhere and if I find them I'll include them). Close inspection shows slight cracks in the red portion of the enamel. $35 shipped USA Priority mail.

My guess would be a fine sandpaper, wet-sand with a 1200 grit should smooth out and clean the surface for a fresh clear coat. I made no attempt to refinish these and just cleaned them with soapy water and a micro-fiber cloth.

Hydro peroxide + muriatic acid + drano and a flavor, Pepsi Cola. Something like that. Learned that from a unhealthy science teacher from Florida.

Strip this to the bear metal, roll it onto a black enamel film and sell it for $200+. I'll buy it if you get stuck with it, I'd be surprised

I just shipped out the last two good ones yesterday. I still have the ones marked 3 and 4 in the picture. $5 either $7 both shipped. You can replace the chipped color enamel with nail polish.
