What kind of wheels are you putting them on? I have some centercaps you might be able to have if you pay for shipping. They are in good condition.

Edit: Oh, and I don't know the websites name but they can color match your paint and sell it to you in a spray can. Ill try to find the website agian.

You might try VHT SP188 Ford Argent Silver Wheel Paint. There is also a clear to go over it.

Only problem with using these caps is the Sport rims don't have a notch in them for removal. The SC rims do though. I found this out the hard way! :(

Speaking of center caps...

There's a deal I just spotted locally for 4 16" Mark VIII wheels that I may buy to put 3 season tires on, and keep my 15" for snow tires. I haven't so much as looked at the wheels yet, so not sure if I'm going to buy them or not, but if I do, I don't want lincoln center caps on them. Will the center caps from the 16" Thunderbird Sport wheels fit on the Mark VIII wheels?

Thanks!

Those caps (15" LX fanblade) do not fit first-gen SC wheels...too small...found that out when I traded my fanblades for SC wheels on my old 95...

A good alternative to these are the caps off of the D cup rims on the fox body mustang. They say ford on them plus they looked good on there. I have the lincon rims on the 92 and unable to change the caps because of the way they snap on. Also have the early sc rims on the 95 with needs a couple of caps because of dents or discoloration. The search goes on for replacements or alternative designs.
