Default Putting my online name on the C7, too

Where I can make it work I put my online name on all my cars' wheel caps. Just my own silliness; we all have something.

Hemistar1, James Dean: I used the OEM caps that came on my '18. They come apart with four little pairs of tabs on the back (use needle-nose pliers) leaving a flat mounting surface, after a little judicious modification. Paint those black and there ya go. It would work fine for any emblem you like as long as it is a minimum of 2 - 2 1/4" in diameter to cover the four little slits used to mount the GM top pieces. Smaller emblems would require a bit more work.

And, it's okay with me if someone thinks it's a Stude or has Avanti wheels. I've driven them a good deal faster than the C7 will go, on the Salt Flats--repeatedly (and, that being with Stude engines) Here is another of my cars, semi-relevant here.

Looks pretty good and a nice personalization of the car.

We are all geeks when it comes to our cars. LOL I'm digging it. Now you will have people asking if Avanti makes wheels for their cars. :0)

What I like most about this forum is I can show my wife that I am not the biggest car nut in the world.
