Has anyone picked up these repos and can comment on the quality of the repo? I'm thinking of ordering a set. Thanks

Dog dish

Odds are, he doesn't have the stainless steel caps I had made, dealers never stocked any. I ran out of the last run of those almost 2 years ago. PG was selling shinny chromed aluminum caps, never had the stainless steel ones.

You might try Matt at MCB, he was the only one with inventory.

I got my caps from Year One back in 2011. Out of the 4 caps in the set I got one of these oddball ones. It was really thin metal and didnt fit the rim correctly...too loose & would pop off.
I called Year One about it and they sent me another set....guess what? It had one of those oddball caps in it as well!
made a good set of 4 and returned the rest.

Looking at the pictures I believe the bad cap was the dull on the inside one...the cap on the right in both the pics....

Did you check the For Sale section here at Moparts. You may get lucky. Or try E-bay, but be ready for them to cost you a arm and leg.

I bought 2 sets of the BE&A SS caps, too bad everyone did not support him or we would have the best repo parts ever made. Non of the ones I have seen from PG and other vendors can stand up to the best repo''s that were made by BE&A twocents

Your "odd ball" cap was chromed aluminum made by PG, that was your problem. I was supplying YO with the SS caps, I have no clue how they mixed them up with someone else's.
