I am thinking of producing a batch of these BRM wheel centers if there is interest in them.
I have had a batch of decals made...also made a couple of the centers. Here is an example of what they look like. They will be chrome with the decals applied.
Same style of fitting...spring type fingers that allow the center to be snapped into the center of the wheel.
Only difference in these over the originals...... these are flat rather than domed. Appreciate feedback to see if I should go ahead and make some.
Thanks

Hi...these are my own attempt...not sure I can press a dome...need to turn up a couple of dies/jigs to do this....might have a go this week...if not...have to go with the flats.
Will update the thread accordingly.

That looks like a Paddy Hopkirk wheel with a BRM wheel centre forced onto it.

Looks like one of these centre caps, they're 80mm diameter

Back to the original post, what size are those caps because they look very similar to the Rover Cooper caps, if so all you need is the sticker and you are sorted. Niall, I'll bring one of my spares to the next MCR meet and you can see if it fits your wheels.

Thanks for the suggestion...however, been there done that...not the same size.
I have tried many different centers...either too large on the outside or too small on the inside...bit like the three Bears!
