Getting desperate for one of these...

Hi everyone,

Does anyone have an extra chrome wheel cap for a 1986+ W126 wheel? Not looking for a new or mint one, just a good cheap replacement. Thanks!

RE: Getting desperate for one of these...

Hi,
Looked at the chrome wheel, and I had an idea; I wonder if you could pick up some "chrome" paint at home depot and give it a spray, it might just be a close enough substitute. All you'd be out was $4 and a bit of time, but then again I don't really know what the chrome insert should look like anyway so it may not be worth it, just a thought...

RE: Getting desperate for one of these...

Thank you everone for the input! I'd prefer getting an actual one rather than painting it.

z168 : I believe they're 15s.

waybomb & 67_250SE : I'll give ebay a shot

Michael Pillay : Jonathan said he was out

Thanks!

- Mark
