I really don't find ABS that revolutionary anymore are there any with a pontiac or bird logo that would work?

I have a set of polished aluminum Corvette ZR1/GS replicas.  They came with a 2” center cap with a plastic Corvette emblem glued on.  I peeled the emblems off, and it left a plain silver center cap with a small black circle outline - boring.  A buddy of mine who used to make and sell Camaro and Firebird related decals and stickers cut me four circular stickers the same diameter as the center caps, and the same color/texture.  They covered up the  center cap completely - still boring.

 

Then he cut four bright red Pontiac “arrowheads” that fit perfectly on the silver center cap discs.  I'll see if I can find a picture.  I also added a red Pontiac arrowhead horn button on my Grant steering wheel.

"Revolutionary"? These are 20+ year old cars. They should look like they just came off the showroom floor , 20+ years ago.

Fred mentioned decals in his post. You can make your own decals with any design you want. Decal paper for ink jet & laser printers, is available on ebay.

 

With a drawing/ picture editing program like photoshop, the skies the limit for your own design. You can go to photoshop website and download a 30 day trial version of program. Or do like me and find an older version of program at a thrift shop for a couple of bucks.

Only picture I could find of the wheel on the car, taken a few months ago.  Car currently has drag wheels on it.    Closeups were taken with wheel flat on ground, so reflections were unavoidable.  Bonus shot of the steering wheel to see the continuity of the theme.
