    Default R8 Steering Wheel center cap (after market)

    Hi fellow Froggers.

    Advertisement


    Just wondering if any one might suggest where I can get a ' Steering Wheel center cap ' for my R8 14" steering wheel for BARNIE.

    I bought this one Attached 5 years ago for my good R8 on the web, probably from China/Hong Kong but I've search and searched and can't find another one anywhere.

    Appreciate any suggestions.

    Cheers
    Phil

    No idea, sorry. Does it have the standard clip-in sized socket?

    Agree, you could buy any aftermarket centre that fits (momo, SAAS etc), find a suitable Renault logo to print out and glue on; then clear coat or epoxy over the top - Iím sure MrG could advise more specifically.

    Yes, to put a clear plastic coating over a sticker is easy peezy, just drizzle the clear resin from a meat skewer and let atmospheric pressure do the rest.

    Hmm. It is not an early R8 one or an R10 one, and it just looks later. Early R12? Someone will know.
