That's cool ! :D

So if I wanted to do something like that,carry it to someone with a CNC ,then how would I get the program or whatever it's called, to tell them what I want? also can that program be sent online?
what I getting at, I use to work at a machine shop,,,could I just walk in there with a jumpdrive in hand with the merchead info on it, & my centercaps & say ''Hey Frank I need a favor!'' just wondering how bad of a cussin I'd get :lol: :lol: basically how much trouble is it?

In the infamous words "I know a guy who knows a guy" a favorite mafia saying.... I'll ask him if he can do some more if anyone is interested. CNC machines can make anything your mind can visualize. I think blank caps are available and would be cheaper to machine the Comet Man on than machining them from a block of billet. If anyone want's some I'll be glad to ask him. 8)

Mike, which way will you have them facing? Looking ahead to see where you are going, or to the rear to see who's eating your dust? :D

I want the left side facing forward and the right as well, so basically 2 heads would have to point one way and two the other for each side of the car.

Yes I know I am a little picky because most times they will be spinning and he might be facing in the air or toward the ground :roll: :P

See Ya,

Mine are two rights and two lefts, the Mercury Man is facing forward on all wheels. I think he can get some aluminum caps pre made that have a flat surface for the face. I believe he told me $130.00 shipped. If he wants I’ll be glad to put you in touch with him. I’ll email today and let you know. Right now I’m in the middle of some rust repair on the 202 rat rod. Got to keep the little woman happy, she is anxious to drive it.
