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.

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!

It's not a 97 Sport, it just looks like one!

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...

The search goes on for replacements or alternative designs.
