Default New Wheel Centercaps

My old "ABS" style wheel caps were pretty nasty. They've had this white stuff on them for as long as I can remember. It'* almost like they were delaminating or something. Anyone else have this? It'* not something that could be removed to say the least. Anyway here'* the craptastic centercaps that were on my car.

Since replacing them would probably be $40 minumum and signsbydrex.com was running a special at the time for $45 shipped, I decided to do a custom order for some new engraved brushed aluminum ones. I've got a 40th anniversary car so I thought I'd do something special/unique. I sent him the design and got these back. I think they turned out pretty well.




What do you guys think?

I think they are sharp as hell.
I was thinking that you had gotten a set of the black Pontiac ones

Basically what they are is a disc that is adhered to the existing cap. I took off the old aluminum with the "ABS" on it and attached the new discs to the black plastic cap.
