    Default Not sure I like what I've done today.................

    I popped a bit of carbon wrap on today, the door pillars and the wing mirror mounts. Whilst I was out I noticed that the Vauxhall logos on the wheel cap centres were looking a bit tatty and a couple were starting to come away from the centres. So I popped them out, removed the silver placcy Vaux logos and removed the glue with some white spirit thinking I could just pop them back in afterwards. Then I realised there are 2 holes in each centre and it would have looked weird if I'd just put them back. And seeing as I had the carbon wrap out anyway.............................

    Now I'm not so sure. I suppose I could add some more Vaux logos but then they'd be the same as they were but with a black centre. or maybe pop some Irmscher logos on each but the wheels are standard, it would look odd.

    I'm thinking about getting hold of some "different" logos to put on them and cover with some epoxy domes but the largest domes I can find are 40mm x 30mm : http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/40x30-mm-e...item416769c7a8 and I'd prefer them 50mm and round, any ideas where to look?

    I'd like to find a different logo or design, pop it on top of the carbon fibre and stick an epoxy dome over the top. Has anyone else done anything similar?
