Dan, get yourself some hubcap clips designed for early VW stuff, cheap as chips, make a template for your holes and drill, they come with a 'sort' of rivet but i just used some self tapers, easy...........only downside on the t5 16's is that with the curviture once the caps are on there a so and so to get off...............

That's it ! Really not sure what to do with centre caps, probably gloss black, then maybe red walls on tyres ( red van)
Open to ideas.
Working on a retro roofrack idea as well, and maybe some wooden side steps to go on my RDC side bars instead of the alloy checkerplate.
Far too much wekend time and far to little cash, seems to make for a more "creative" time

It's your friends, come hell or high water.
