Beasty, I owe you for the clue on that eBay auction.

Venom, M62'* are tested at 20,000 rpm'*. I'll be spinning a wee bit faster than that, hence the need for this:

Where is the pic of the matching Body armor in case a rotor makes it threw the firewall. I say go for the black and gold ABS caps its a nice touch.

Gold it is then. I'll put 'em on this morning during Bo'* potty break. These things are in factory new packaging. Only problem is I don't have a spare, so I may use a couple dabs of RTV to make sure I don't fling one off at high speed.

Just noticed (refer to the pics above) that the Font is different. In fact, two of my black/silver are the Pontiac font on the car, and the other two are not. The black/gold are not the Pontiac Font.

I don't recall what my spare black/silver is, or my spare silver/black for the SLE. I need to check them when I get home tonight.

Regardless, the black center caps are EXTREMELY rare and nearly impossible to find. I'm keeping them, particularly since I only have 4 of the black/gold, and no spare. If I lose even one (at high speed), the old ones have to go back on.
