Default Engine Fluid Chrome Caps/Covers

Last year before I decided to buy new Hela Chrome Wheels for the car, I purchased new Chrome Chrysler center caps for my OEM rims which were still in good condition. Once, I purchased the new aftermarket rims, I actually forgot about the center caps and they were lost among treasures (junk) in my garage.

Over the past few years , I have been buying an assorted bunch of chrome fluid covers to dress the engine, ACC, Kirbin Performance, Mr. Gasket etc.
All were decent but lacked conformity.

Then, I remembered the center caps and a new project began.

I pulled metal tension ring off the center caps with a needle nose and then began to gently break off the outer plastic pieces with a pliers. I then used a metal file to sand off any remaining plastic bits till the bottom of the center caps were smooth and flat.

I chose the windshield wiper cap, radiator overflow cap, oil cap, and brake fluid cap to dress up with the Chrysler logo chrome center caps. (Attached with heat and water resistant 3M glue.)

I left the power steering chrome cap alone. It looks good.

This bloody cold weather here in NYC has been fueling ideas for indoor projects like these!
