do they make silver wheel center caps that have the colored crest?

I have a silver hood crest and need to swap out the gold wheel center caps but I'd prefer a colored crest not the silver/black caps.

Well, they cost like $100

Better yet, get the super awesome spinning Porsche crests. They are like $300 but they spin so they always face up (i guess they are weighted on the bottom and are able to spin on a bearing). They even have videos of them, pretty cool.

Hi Bagwell, sorry. OK, if you find them, please send me a link too. I would consider replacing my wheel crests and hood crest to silver too, with color, and get rid of the gold.

DJ, your like the forum martha stuart, lol. You should make a book of all the stuff youve hand painted or crafted from ordinary objects. I just dont have the time to go through and paint everything.

hehhe, well believe it or not it doesnt take long time. i painted the crest on the wheel in no more than 10 minutes, no joke.
the centercaps were all done by my GF so i take no credit for that
the shiftknob took no more than 10 minutes either.
now the gauge rings took freaking forever masking all that off
and side vents were point and shoot

so if you have 2 free hours u can paint everything other than the gauge rings haev a beer while u wait for one to dry and tackle another.
