Given up: Big Logo L345/L249 Commercial Hubcaps

Post by reezvaan » Sun Feb 09, 2014 9:50 pm

Some of you might know me from this Big Logo Hubcaps sale thread: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=100246

Someone asked me (cant remember who) about the L345 Grey Hubcaps availability and at that time I didn't have any but I have been working on the prospect and now it seems one has come to light. However, since the source I was getting the Chromely Big Logo Hubcaps has ran out, so I had to go look for another. And I found one, but it wasn't cheap (quite understandable as now it had to be a special order item).

Was just wondering if Big Logo Hubcaps were to be available in L345 Grey (Commercial) finish, would there be any interest? And if yes, can we get a list of how many would be interested in a set? The more the better because with volumes the price would tend to be more reasonable than the smaller volumes.

I am looking into both, L345 Painted as well as L345 Powder Coated finishes. Let me know what you guys think. cheers

PS: above image is borrowed from the Samba to only show the L345 finish. The Big Logo ones would be different than these as these are standard logo ones.

I was VERY tempted by the chrome large logo hubcaps you were doing but decided I was going head down the painted route to suit the 55 better. However I need them in L 249 dove grey as they were on dove blue vans, would that be an option?

Do be cautious VW are prosecuting people for replicating their logo without their permission. It is a breach of copyright laws.

If your re selling OG ones your well within the law, its reproduced ones that VW have issues with.

Aren't the suppliers, C&C, heritage, scholedield, mega bug etc etc already selling repro hubcaps? Or did they have permission? Only asking, as how they sell them and individuals can't :?
