Awesome! That gives me time think whether I want the gunmetal grey or black version (or both!)

Not-for-sale; just a complementary color-test kit for you Bran, I'll send it to you with your other kit (Man that classic pcar... those back wheels' and fender flares, yummy. Jeez man if I had money I'd hunt for a classic like this one).

ps. here goes the spare parts I kept for you guys, just in case of mishaps. Got plenty of them in all colors, adapters and an industrial amount of those lil crests too. You know the drill, shoot me a PM if you need a replacement or anything

Hey fred - forgot I posted this + car had an accident recently. To clarify, only the outer-facing plate fell off, the clamp with tabs is still on the wheel. Unsure how that happened but would definitely love to get a replacement (just the 1 outer-facing plate is good). Let me know how we should do it!

Hey y'all!
Help... please.
I'm installing a set of the 2nd generation center caps (man are they pretty!). So these are the ones with the tiny little set-screws. (I THINK that's the 2nd gen, right?)
What's the trick to installing them?

With my big banana-hands and hot-dog fingers, using the supplied allen wrench, I managed to -mostly- install one last night. it took me most of 30 minutes.

Is there a cool tool y'all use? or do you hire children from the neighborhood to do it?

Any tricks or hints would sure be appreciated.

Agree that lil'wrench isn't fantastic, works but certainly no performing LOL See if you can find one with a longer handle in your toolbox or if not use a small diameter metal pipe as an extender e.g. slide the long-end of the hex wrench in it and use that pipe as handle (drinking straw size pipe, or anything else solid and hollow, old broken ink pen, anything...).

Hope the idea helps a bit

I ended up cutting most of the 90d end off of one so I could spin it between my fingers. Then I took the longer one and tightened them up.

They look BEAUTIFUL.

Even better than I could come up with!

Ps. sorry for that HelloKitty wrench man (seriously couldn't found longer ones at the time, I'll put a bit more energy next time, thanks for letting know)
