Couple SC Center cap questions.

I can't remember if any of the mn12 tbirds with the 16'' wheel came with a metal center cap or not.

I know that the 96-97 sport has plastic center caps.

Does the 94-95 sc have metal center caps, or does the earlier sc have them?

The reason I ask is I am getting ready to send a set of sc wheels to the powdercoater, but I need to buy some center caps first, and make sure they are metal and able to be powdercoated.

Thanks,
JH

Newer style SC rims were actually 93 - 95. Earlier SC had aluminum caps, I believe the later ones were plastic. Haven't had stock wheels on my car for a while now, don't recall for sure.

XR-7 wheels use a different size centre cap, approx. 6" diameter.

I saw a tbird at the track one night with the 16" XR-7 wheels and tbird center caps. Not sure what year tbird center caps fit or if there is any modification required.

Sold = 96 Thunderbird
