Looking for front caps for Alcoa

I'm getting ready to put the new tires on the rims and decided to do some cleanup work on them. I'm polishing them up to look nice and shiny:

The problem is that one of the front wheels has never had the center cap that goes with them. Does anyone know of a place that would have these? They don't have to say airstream, but I just don't want an open hole in the hub. Here's the other front wheel that does have the center cap.

Obviously it hasn't been polished yet. The other wheel looked the same before I polished her up. Really didn't take as much effort as I thought it would. Just used some "Aircraft Paint Remover", a Scotch Bright pad, some 2000 grit sand paper and Mothers Mag Wheel Polish. I used a Mothers Power Ball on a drill to do the work.

I may do a more detailed write-up on this with more pictures. I still have quite a few wheels to go.

Just picked up one of these on ebay:

Close enought to make it not look out of place. Hopefully it will fit.
