Default 2001 SSEi Bonneville owners.....pls read

If you have the chrome 17'* swoopie rims, like I have on my car, how is the center cap assembled?. I know the cap is chrome, but the centre portion has a hex portion that sticks out...and it has a Pontiac badge in it. Its that a decal or a metal plate or what?

I got somethin up my sleeve and curious minds wish to know

Yes, but they werent available, they dont pop up all that often and the dealer list price is like $80 per cap

Ebay is my only chance, and there are some up now.

Snag them! I'm sure you can figure something out, and if nothing else, sell them back on ebay for a profit...
