More monkey madness: Enkei RPT1 katakana centercaps

Sooooooo, I’m catching up on a big job at work this week and babysitting the CNC gives me lots of little chunks of free time to get into trouble...

What kind of trouble, you ask?

The best kind of trouble. Machinist unobtanium. The RPT1 wheels on my rig have a smooth 109mm centerbore without a lip and I’m not aware of any caps that fit them (No, I didn’t bother looking for them anywhere). I saw those TEQ grille badges a while back, but that design isn’t really my jam. So I asked a Japanese friend to find me a better logo. And he did. Like a goddamn champion. So, I messed with some design variants and came up with something I like and printed it overnight last night. I’m gonna cut them tonight after work and throw them in with a load of black anodization on Monday:









Pretty stoked.

Q&A time:

No, I won’t make any extra sets.

Yes, I’ll send you the file if you ask nicely.

Yes, I Sharpied out the white lettering on my wheels. It's hideous, I know. I'm waiting on a black tire paint roller-pen to fix it, lol

I like the effort....but I am OCD over symmetry. The Logo needs to be centered IMO. I agree the black center looks killer on the grey wheel.

Fair enough. I tried it centered and it just wasnít quite right to my eye. Large, medium, small... didnít matter.

Actually, itís not that it didnít work. It was a little predictable and boring. I like doing something a bit more unexpected.

That said, youíre definitely *not* going to like what Iím working on for the rear logo... More monkey madness: Enkei RPT1 katakana centercaps

I like them, we do this stuff for ourselves right? Nobody is going to be rolling down the highway and pull up and say what is up with that guy's centercaps?

Being a machinist myself I was all about symmetry. I have since learned to embrace asymmetry. Still works when I mow my lawns, though. LOL! Love your work. Leave Ďem black. Itís a Nightshade. Blacked the sombreros on my stock center caps.

Thanks man! I'm definitely going all black on them.

And I think we're building pretty similar trucks, lol. I ordered my Magnuson kit last week. You stoked on yours?

Yep! It was sittiní on the showroom floor just the way it is. Canít take credit for mods. Just cominí up on 5K miles. No problems and butt dyno says it my be as quick as my Ď07 Tundra 5.7. Mileage is Ďbout the same as my Ď13 Limited ĎRunner. Best if a dealer or ďCertifiedĒ mechanic installs it. Magnuson has a thee year warranty. Traded in my Ď13 ĎRunner and my Ď15 Mustang GT. No regrets.
