I bought some 'chrome' paint and tried it on a rusty lug nut cover. Not so shiny on close up, a mask at best.
The lug nut covers at Southwest Wheel are plastic and $2.95 each. The center caps are aluminum so no rust but they are very thin and dent easily.

I was thinking if you had the centers lathe out to a close tolerance they would still stay on with a little clear silicone caulk. It might be difficult to maintain a clean smooth look snipping and bending, but it might work too.

I found these guys [ Southwestern Machine & Tool Works, Inc. ], they're are on my way to work.

I couldn't be happier in finding a local machine shop who know their stuff.

Inside diameter of the retainer ring turned on one of their CNC machines saved having two new ones custom made (couldn't find any replacements elsewhere)

There's a recent ad on Craigslist in Boise, ID, by a guy who is parting out a fire damaged '93 land yacht with 6 lug 19.5" Alcoas, search for "Airstream" to find the ad. If I recall correctly, my front hubs are 5 lug.

Replacement hub for 350LE

From the attached pics, seems I lost the center hub from the front passenger wheel. Can anyone provide a link/ideas to a source for a replacement center hub as shown in the remaining hub pic ?
