Custom painted center caps from Lupe

Ordered a set of custom painted center caps from Lupe at River City creations and finally got around to installing them yesterday.

Since the wheels had to come off to get the factory caps out, I decided I might as well change out the stock lug nuts for black ones.

Very pleased with the end results. Here's some pics.

Very nice. The Camaro 5 ZL1 owners never cease to find new ways to do special mods to their cars.

Ever think about painting the "Camaro" lettering Red on the wheel?
I am thinking about it for my 1LE.
Maybe someone can PS it.

Absolutely!

Lupe is working on some interior mods for me this off season. I ordered a painted shifter bezel, speedometer/tachometer bezel, and steering wheel bezel from him last week. Can't wait to see how they turn out.

Yes, I've thought about it. Here's a thread from some other members who have done it.

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=270071

I've got my OEM wheels off for the winter and I'm seriously considering having them repainted. I just might have the letters painted at the same time.

Looks nice. Are those center caps ZL1 specific; or are they universal?
