As an alternative to the expensive and often hard to find rear wheel caps, here is one designed earlier. It's not quite as per the original but I think it looks better than a missing centre cap



And in real-life:



They've been printed using the "natural" plastic colour (right) and then the front of them sprayed White.  I will get some proper White plastic and see how they look.  They are bright White so will look a bit out of place if the wheel covers are anything other than super clean

They can be tricky to remove, but when they're on they stay on.  You can have them and let me know how you get on with them. I still owe you those wheel covers, I'll get them to you later this week.

The touchscreen box is on its way, will post something tomorrow.  I'm no cad designer so may need pointers as to whether it will work and look good etc before I commit to printing things out

These have been changed and the C5 writing removed to make them easier to print they are also flat but you won't notice it much:

Hi and welcome to the website!

They're not for sale yet, they're in for testing at the moment.

I finally got around to fitting a set to the 24v C5 and experimented with some Red plastic on this one:



The White colour is off a bit compared to the rest of the wheel cover, but there's not much I can do about that just yet.  The "C5" writing is actually Red plastic rather than a sticker

Hi Dan Covered the centre cap in reflective tape, not sure if it's too much, not sure whether to add the other 3 reflective pads, what do you think

Looks good, how about using the same reflective sheet as the centre cap where the 3 reflective stickers are

I like both of them guys.  Mick, where did you get the tape from to cover the cap?

What do you want perfection. These were the only one's available, I think. If you know anyone who is selling these in the same material then I am as Charlie would say , all ears.
