Thread: 20" replica R/T wheel 7 1/8" center caps

  1. #1

    Default 20" replica R/T wheel 7 1/8" center caps

    Does anyone need center caps for their 20" R/T replica wheels. I am having some 3D printed for me.

    Nice!
    Surprised no one has done this prior.I realize those that want/need chrome is a whole other issue,but I’m sure someone could figure that out as well.

    Indeed a great idea. Chrome should be no problem as it would probably go on like a vinyl "skin wrap". I'd love to get a couple chrome replicas printed for the 17" wheel.

    There are companies that can "chrome" plastics.

    I'd be interested in a couple myself, if they were reasonably priced.

    This is also true. The "chrome" plastic pieces on my Yamaha motorcycle were of great quality. Just a matter of finding a shop that can do this reasonably. If after all is said and done and we're still approaching the $50 mark for one, might as well stick with eBay.

    For clarification, a 7-1/8” cap would be for the oversized replica cap design.
    If you can get pricing, definitely post this up on the Dakota Facebook groups too (if you’re looking to make some money for your efforts with these).

    That I do not know if i want to give up. Just spent a good amount of time getting all the measurements and stuff correct. I'm ok with getting them printed for you. Just need to get the hook on a good company to print them.

    I am in contact with three companies about it. I am waiting on their replies. They have indicated they will hold the cad files under the dakotart name and allow member to have caps made as they need them. I'll let you know what I find out.

    All of the companies I have had contact with, want to see the Auto Cad files before they will quote or commit to the project. Should I just get a 3D printer and keep this in house or do you want to send them your Auto Cad files?
