Disc/Moon/Smoothie Hubcaps Source

I bought a set of 12" discs for my Metro a few years ago from this guy.
Nice quality....

If I could find some light steel wheels for my Pcar I'd put discs on it.
I love the look of them.

Solution:

Frisbee (x4) + silver Krylon + industrial strength velcro

I actually found some that were close. I was just venting because you can't find the "racing disks" in abs plastic which would bring cost down.

found them at jcwhitney for around 30 bucks. they do have holes around the perimeter of them but they are small. relatively speaking.

I was thinking of making some for the Beast out of corrugated plastic and double stick tape, just to test what gains I might get.
