GS logo tire valve stem caps
« on: December 06, 2013, 12:00:45 PM »
Rob

Last time I seen your red 65 GS convert you had some great looking chrome plated valve caps with the GS logo on the top.

Are they metal or plastic?

I'm making up my Christmas list and thought they would be a great addition to my car.

If yours are metal could you share where they are available.

Thanks as always

Milton, I have those on my 4 speed car, which you saw last summer at Mark's place. I think they are plastic, but I do not know who sells them, as they were on the car when I bought it.

Yep,  that was Tom's car.  Mine are basic black plastic.   If you would like I can find out where you can get them. :laughing7:

Here are some:  http://www.custom-werks.com/Grand-black-logo-caps-p/5050500.htm

Not sure if they are plastic or metal.  Not too expensive, regardless.

Thanks everyone

It looks like both Small Auto Parts and Custom-Werks on ebay have a large selection in plastic for about $13.

I think I have what I need to head Santa in the right direction for some good inexpensive fun.

If anyone does find these in metal I would be interested in hearing about them.

Thanks again :hello2:
