Turbine centre cap

Hi Guys

No had my b long as it's in the garage I thought I would repaint my wheels, as I come to get the last one off, I found the centre cap didn't want to budge,

It was wrecked and stuck in place with looks like a full tube of silicone.

Bit of a mess

I need a replacement ,, anyone got a spare,,,,,, Or know of one

Cheers Rob

Re: Turbine centre cap

These are a few pics not very pretty from inside but works well
I cut and sanded away some of the original cap then cut the new bit down and sanded it, then tapped a small bolt to the original and then som fibreglass to help
