Rostyle Centre Cap

Interceptor, SP, FF

Just got some Rostyle centre caps made. They have a large circlip preventing the cap from coming off while driving. Can't put them on ATM as need a larger circlip remover tool and still need to paint them.

Brilliant! Would you mind posting the manufacturer - in the hope they've got the machining program on hand.....

Dudley.P organised it all. As you're probably aware he's no fan of Rostyle wheels, but stated he had a chap who could make a far better centre than the originals.. I loaned Dudley a Rostyle, which he in turn gave to the chap who was making the centres.

Give Dudley a call, I'm sure he'll give contact details.

Thank you. I bought a set of caps from Dudley but ones gone south...

I think the Interceptor is a difficult car to match aftermarket wheels, so these are a great solution to an annoying problem.

I really don't fancy losing those medallions, or for that matter the centre caps. I can't believe how loose the original centre caps are, even with the spring intact. Dudley stated many owners glue the spring in place (to stop it falling out).
