how did you get the caps to fit Rod, was originally looking at this but couldn't figure a way without cutting
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...............

now they ARE retro:cool: that's what the lada 'reseach' was about then...:D
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 T:LOL:

"Lada ( :eek: )cream" Halfords rattle can ! Was struggling to find out if it's normally known as beige or cream, whole Lada thing wrapped in myth and legend:D.
But, Lada Cream is what Halfrauds called it T:

kestom, could you tell me where i can get the caps for my merc 16" steels - for my winter rims pleaseeeeee

i love the look kustom, and feal that they would go well on my van :ILU:
Any beetle parts supplier in the mags sell them at about £40 a set, now you could be different and use some caps usually destined for kustom kars and hotrods............
