A tiny but apparently insignificant update is that a tough negotiation with the source has helped bring down the cost a little. he's willing to do a set of 4 Big Logo Painted Hubcaps (L345 / L249) for £180 and says its the best he could do at the minute. Thought I should update it on here. Cheers

Shame :(

Had you considered selling them in bare metal for people to paint themselves (or get painted)?

Just a thought...

the thought did cross my mind but the bare ones aren't cheaper either at £130 + pnp. but if someone wants a set or two in bare, i can bring some in. from experience of chromely LL Hubcaps i know the pnp within UK is £7.50 for a set of four, so we're looking at £137.50 for a set of 04 bare metal hubcaps in Big Logo.

If someone wants a set at that price, let me know we can work something out. cheers

I'm giving up trying to keep our chrome hubcaps rust free.
I've had L345 made up in large spray cans by Middleton Panels in Gloucester 01452 527351.
Came with 2 really good quality spray heads too.
Hope that helps.

Correct, because that would still be cheaper!

Yes, I've painted my bus with L345 rattlecans.
Get them made up at your local paint supplier.
