Elite S1 centre caps

Hi guys
other than S&J anyone know where else might do these?
Id like one.......but with the same patina my existing 3 have.......rather than shiny and new
or I will need to go for a set of 4.........and they work out about £25 each........and I think thats 'alot'
thanks

Re: Elite boot lid "Push Here To Close" label

Yes you can still buy them....... It seems they have doubled in price........ So I asked isaydingdong....and they said they could do them for £5 (Tthe original price of the others) if we knew the size of them......

Re: Elite series 1 wheel colour?

was the rest of the rim just very highly polished or did they have a paint of laquer finish?
the pics of the early ones seem to have a depth and a refraction to them in high sun.....a sort of rainbow effect
or am I just looking at it all through rose tinted glasses?....lol

It's from the type 36 elan......so I'm guessing if it's right for your car ...then yours is very early and was probably using up the last of these.......as was typical with lotu...
