Thought you guys might enjoy or have use for this. One of the things I have been up to on my 408C stroker build. On "that other site" where there are no quality posts... :buck:

How about this iteration I just made?:

Needs tweaking but I think this is what I will go with. B302/351 inspired.

I like the bigger 408 and it reads better that way. That's pretty sharp.

Bob that looks fantastic. The bigger 408 really sticks out.

Bob I really like it. I think the big 408 is the way to go.

Cool! Now find me someone who can do the 3-dimensional anodized aluminum decals found on hubcap centers. I actually think the red '68 std caps would look pretty sharp with good chrome, black paint redone, and shiny red walking cat centers. In reality though I'll probably just cave in and get SS wheels...

Thanks guys, I had a lot of fun doing this and Jeff (from MCnet) was indispensible.

As for 3D for wheel centers (Andrew), that is way beyond what we are doing here. I imagine you'd need a 3D printer as suggested to me in the original thread on MCnet.

Finished! Printed on the new material (brushed finish in the correct orientation) and clear coated with photo protectant spray.
