Oh somebody has fondmetal 4000s... well.... good luck finding any... i spent years looking as did Jake before me.

And this was a problem... so i designed some in 3D and then got them 3D printed. They are now for sale on shapeways.

Expensive at 20 euros each however thats the cost of 3d printing im afraid! If I get a 3D printer myself in the future Ill be able to make them for less.

Haha, yeah. I bought a set last night in Scotland so they should be in N.I next week.

Technology is amazing that we can print these things that would have been impossible to get before. Still thats a lot of money for centre caps. I think ill just try and find plain ones on ebay in the mean time.

They are awesome wheels however you cant fit anything but 247s under them. I fit 266s but thats with ground done callipers and 10mm spacers! ive tried to find plain ones on ebay however none of them are the right size or depth! Hence making these!

Yo Ollie. There is a discount on shapeways right now where I can get 15% off my own designs. Ive just bought 3 more of these so I have a complete set. Cost me 52 euros which is £37.50 for 3. Just a heads up in case you wanted some.

Cheers, going to hold off, need to get them painted and buy tyres as well.  Test fitted them on the sierra when the arrived yesterday.  Such a cool wheel.

The new methodology of the man is coupled with the content management for the field. The actual movement of the best essay writing service uk reviews is accentuated for the scenes. The picture issued for the improvement of the scores. The margin is vague for the teachers and all students for the use of the officials.
